The Boiling Rock

The Boiling Rock was inspired by the prison island of Alcatraz (see Art Book p. 157).

But what I find really cool is that there’s a real place in the Philippines, the Taal Volcano, which is a boiling lake in a caldera in a lake with an island inside it. Pretty cool flaming, isn’t it :D

If you want to know more about that volcano go watch BBC’s Wonder of Life. I really enjoyed that series.
