Historiae Naturalis

Historiae Naturalis is a visualization of the biological sciences of the 16th century and earlier. Specifically, it is based on the natural history writings and drawings of Pliny the Elder, Konrad Gesner, Edward Topsell, and others. Visually, it is similar to Crayoland, where the entire 3D environment is constructed of paper-thin 2D drawings.
