Google honors Nicolas Steno with an amazing doodle. Nicolas Steno was a Danish pioneer in both anatomy and geology. By 1659 he had decided not to accept anything simply written in a book, resolving instead to do research himself.
The doodle shows a sedimentary landscape. Some fossils are buried in the rock.
Nicolaus Steno was born 1638 in Copenhagen (374 years ago). After completing his university education, Steno set out to travel through Europe. He met many prominent physicians and scientists. Steno first developed the theory that the fossils were ancient life forms.
I painted the doodle as it might have be seen before the Google artist have cut it from the sedimant layers :-)
Happy brithday, Nicolas Steno. THUMBS UP if you like this doodle :-)
