Fabulous maritime diorama with engraved nameplate "Galapagos Expedition H.M.S. Beagle and Charles Darwin At Islands c. 1831. 3/32 Scale, A. Clark". This project was built by William Hitchcock and his son Paul Hitchcock, Circa 1990. This is one of their very few deep-water dioramas. The technique makes the water seem extremely deep. Darwin's ship the HM Beagle is shown at anchor with a launch full of explorers rowing ashore. The shoreline is accurately represented with rock upcropping and a sandy beach. This model is high quality with a planked deck, cannon, standing and running rigging. This is a holy grail piece by The Hitchcock Team who signed their collaborative work A. Clark. Fitted to a glass display case with glass cover.
