If it is, I really don't want to know what some of the features of this map represent biologically.

The opportunities that statement presents are almost boundless...

I believe that the main doors of many Gothic Cathedrals where designed to look like/represent vaginas.  So have many cars' grills and hood ornaments, and many other more abstract forms of art Why shouldn't an island do it? We're humans; we feel everything either looks like us, or should look like us. Plus, if you can work something lke that in without anyone catching on enough to complain, I respect you for that.

Good fun. At the same time, this is pretty much how river islands form. There are lots of examples. So it can be both geologically true and metaphorically true.
