The doodle features the Google logo on a doormat with the O's being replaced by a pair of women's slippers and a small pair of children's slippers behind them.

Artist Sophie Diao, who created the doodle posted the following, "As we get older, we forget how heavily we once relied on our mothers and mother-figures. Today's doodle for Mother's Day harkens back to a time in my youth when following Mom around was all I knew.

Thanks, Mom, for all the sacrifices, laughs, and love."

Mother's Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. They day honours the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.

American Anna Jarvis is credited with the founding of the modern holiday of Mother's Day, which was celebrated first in 1908 when she held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
