Google Introduced Artist Theme for Your Personalized Google Page, iGoogle

iGoogle themes are not new for all of us. Most of the people are already using them. For those who don't know about iGoogle theme:

"A theme is custom design for the iGoogle page. You define a theme in an XML file that contains key-value pairs for iGoogle page attributes, such as background and text color. A theme can be as simple as a color setting for the header background and iGoogle logo, or it can include multiple images and dynamic behavior.

A theme has one or more skins. A skin is a particular design for the iGoogle page. For example, you could have a theme that displays different skins depending on the time of day.

Each skin is represented in a themes specification by a different ConfigMap (configuration map). A theme is essentially a collection of configuration maps." - more.

Some of the examples are as below
