Amazing Google doodle for Nicolas Steno

Google honors Nicolas Steno with an amazing doodle. Nicolas Steno was a Danish pioneer in both anatomy and geology. He was born 1638 as Niels Stensen in Copenhagen (374 years ago). 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. It is an amazing doodle – looks like the Google designer has dig it up sedimentary layers.

Here is the doodle:

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. Wilhelm von Humbold called him the father of geology. Here is what I supose how the landscape looks like before the Google-Designer began to work :-)
