Artist's Description


This is definitely the island to visit in the Galapagos, but be prepared for the heat and the humidity. Excursions to some of the nearby small islands will introduce you to a plethora of interesting creatures including, marine iguanas, sea lions, sharks, sea turtles, penguins (yes, penguins!) and blue-footed boobies, to name a few.
Isabela Island is the largest island of the Galápagos with an area of 4,640 square kilometres (1,790 sq mi), and length of 100 kilometres (62 mi) almost four times larger than Santa Cruz, the second largest of the archipelago. It was named after Queen Isabella of Spain. The island strides the equator.
One of the youngest islands, Isabela is located on the western edge of the archipelago near the Galápagos hotspot. At approximately 1 million years old, the island was formed by the merger of 6 shield volcanoes – Alcedo, Cerro Azul, Darwin, Ecuador, Sierra Negra and Wolf. All of these volcanoes except Ecuador are still active, making it one of the most volcanically active places on earth. Two of the volcanoes, Volcan Ecuador and Volcan Wolf (the island’s highest point with an altitude of 5,600 feet or 1,707 meters), lie directly on the equator. The island is primarily noted for its geology, providing excellent examples of a geologic occurrence that created the Galapagos Islands including uplifts at Urvina Bay and the Bolivar Channel, tuff cones at Tagus Cove, and Pulmace on Alcedo and Sierra Negra, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
This artwork is derived from a photograph taken February 15, 2013 in the Galapagos Islands belonging to Ecuador.
