What about this sculpture? The Cornberg Sandstone contains a unique fossil record of footprints from Permian Ages. The sandstone was formed about 250 million years ago, and You can find this special sandstone only in the Cornberg region. I don`t tell the whole formation history (although it`s very interesting), because this was a bit too long. So for now, I want to show some pictures of small footprint exhibits in the exhibition rooms. Inside the quarry You can visit and see large rock beams with lots of footprints. The “Dachshund of Cornberg” was a first reconstruction of the animals that left these footprints, when nobody knew which animals had lived there.
But it was neither a dachshund nor a lion.
Several Therapsids (mammal-like reptiles), p.e. Pelycosaurs left these footprints.
