google doodle

On May 21 this year, Google marked the 215th anniversary of the birth of Mary Anning (1799-1847) with one of its famous cartoons called Google doodles.

Google’s doodles are spontaneous changes made to the Google logo in celebration of holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists who have helped shape history.

Last year a photograph was discovered that may be of Mary Anning. Simply titled ‘The Geologists‘, we shall never know if it really was of Anning, but the dress of the woman looks strikingly similar to that in the famous portrait of Anning.
