Submission + - Picaso Inspiration For Mac Finder Icon? (

Kilrah_il writes: Cattani Simone, an Italian blogger, noticed an interesting tidbit: The Mac Finder icon is very similar to one of the figures in Picasso's "Two Charaters" painting. "... looking at those I felt there was something strange. Do you notice anything familiar? The icon of the Macintosh Finder seems very similar to the face of one of the characters of the work of the Spanish artist".
The program was part of the MacOS from 1984, but ExtremeTech could not confirm when the icon made its debut or who designed it. Any former-Apple designers in the crowd to help us out?
