|Google Doodle: 366th anniversary of Maria Sibylla Merian|
Born on April 02 1647, Maria Sibylla Merian was a scientific illustrator. At first she studied both insects and plants then painted it with great detail. She carefully observed the metamorphosis of the butterfly which eventually made her a contributor to entomology.
I guess Google made a design that has a caterpillars and butterflies, you will notice it in the graphic. She was influenced by her father-in-law Jacob Marrel, a Still Life(a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter) painter.
At the age of 13, Maria first painted the image of insects and plants that she had captured.
