This website contains artistic illustrations depicting time periods in the history of the Earth. A geologic time scale highlights major events and sections of the Earth's history and connects to artist illustrations of what the Earth looked like at different times. Using information gathered by geologists, the artist depicts mainly dinosaurs, landscapes and plant life in the illustrations and provides a brief explanation of what the Earth was thought to be like during different time periods. The images contain the scientific names of all animals depicted.
