Google's logo for Christmas (Part 2) - Indian dance styles, Sahara Desert, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Oud, Chili Pepper & Venice Gondolas...

Google Logo - 7th piece - Indian dance styles...

Google Logo - 8th piece - Sahara Desert in West Africa (The Great Desert) is the world's largest hot desert at over 9,400,000 square kilometres (3,630,000 sq mi).

Google Logo - 9th piece - Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia is a steel through arch bridge across Sydney Harbour that carries rail, vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district (CBD) and the North Shore. The dramatic view of the bridge, the harbour, and the nearby Sydney Opera House is an iconic image of both Sydney and Australia. The bridge is locally nicknamed "The Coat Hanger" because of its arch-based design.

Google Logo - 10th piece - The oud is a pear-shaped stringed instrument commonly used in North Africa and Middle Eastern music. The modern oud and the European lute both descend from a common ancestor via diverging evolutionary paths. The oud is readily distinguished by its lack of frets and smaller neck. 

Google Logo - 11th piece - Chili pepper is the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum, members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae.
Chili peppers originated in the Americas. After the Columbian Exchange, many cultivars of chili pepper spread across the world, used in both food and medicine.

Google Logo - 12th piece - Venice Gondolas is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat, well suited to the conditions of the Venetian Lagoon. For centuries gondolas were once the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice.
