An outcrop of stratified rock


RCIN 912394

Leonardo had a profound awareness of geological processes. He wrote about the immense forces that formed mountain ranges, and the huge periods of time over which they weathered. Leonardo also made many drawings of rock formations; some were imaginary, but here he made a careful record of an outcrop of stratified rock bursting out of the earth.
