Artist's Description

Mahe, the largest of the Seychelles islands, 27 km long by up to 8 km wide, is the political and commercial centre of the Seychelles. Up to 90% of all Seychelles inhabitants live on Mahe. It is this island that first greets all visitors, since the only International Airport exists here, built by the English in 1971 and opened by Queen Elisabeth of England in 1972. It is the pride and joy of the Seychelles, a centre for contact with the outside world. Also on the island are the two main ports, allowing deep-sea vessels to dock.
The Government has its seat within the capital Victoria, where most of the business takes place. The first people arrived in 1778, during the French colonial period, they were police sent from Mauritius to bring law and order. They built their houses at Victoria, which was then named L’Establissement du Roi. The city received its current name in 1841, named after the Queen of England at the time, Victoria.
Mahe is a granite island, rising out of the sea with her mountain tops often obscured from view by a blanket of clouds. Morne Seychellois rises to a height of 905 meters above sea level. Rich vegetation covers the whole island, in the lower regions mainly coconut palms grow, in the mountainous areas tropical forests with their own unique species of plants. Coconuts, cinnamon and vanilla are cultivated on Mahe, with tea being cultivated at altitudes above 600 meters.
