Vignettes of fossils discovered by Mary Anning in the Blue Lias fossil beds at Lyme Regis.
Belemnites - bullet shaped fossils which the locals called "devil's fingers"
fragments of crinoids - they look like wee flowers or stars,
fossilised gastropods - sea shells
and of course those lovely curled Ammonites... "snake-stones".
There was also a local name for the sections of animal spine...
"verteberries" (vertebrae), to which were sometimes attributed medicinal and mystical properties!

Your plesiosaur has a pleasing shape indeed - as does the rest! Very cool!

Ellen - it's fate - I'm so glad you are loving it!
This is so cool! I JUST started reading a book about her earlier today, and then I am checking out the contest entries tonight and I see this. Fabulous!
Hi Tina - such lovely feed back - thank you!
Wonderful illustrations and such a great idea!
Hi Kim - thank you for the lovely feedback - I'm so very pleased you've met Mary and her 'pets'! She had a dog too - called Tray.
Hooray, it's finished. Mary deserves recognition and it is so nice of you to give it to her in this classic blue toile with her "pets".
Thank you Amy - it's good to learn something new every day!
Fantastic! So detailed and elaborate .......and I learned something too....SF is educational!
Hi Rhonda I'm so pleased you have heard of her - it was hard deciding what to put in and what to leave out. I was going to add her first major discovery, made with her brother, an ichthyosaur... but the Plesiosaurus won out due to the lovely shape it makes.<br>
I was very tempted to add a lightning struck tree too! You may have to look her up on Wikipedia to read about that.
This design is a fine tribute to Mary Anning; a woman whose scientific endeavours, discoveries and knowledge were largely unrecognised by her academic peers during her lifetime.
