Wiremu Kingi Tarapipi Te Waharoa standing, after addressing a group of his fellow Maori who are seated at his feet within the palisades of a pa. To the right, in the background, a ship is standing at sea while troops are marched towards it, overseen by Brigadier-General Carey on horseback. A group of volunteer Pakeha troops are marching up from the middle distance on the right. The suggestion of the text is that this was a weak moment in England's fighting, that the Maori were winning and that this was not the moment to surrender.
