Artist unknown :Native fort in New Zealand. London, New Zealand Association, 1837.

Reference Number: PUBL-0112-front

A rangatira standing with cloak and taiaha in his right hand, framed by tall trees, and with a headland surmounted by a pa in the background. The Maori figure is reproduced in larger form on p. 128 of the same volume and is a redrawing of Richard Read's 'Tetoro, a chief of New Zealand' first published in 1823. The background landscape is possibly intended to represent the Bay of Islands, and the manner of drawing pataka is reminiscent of the work of Augustus Earle, who is the source of two other illustrations in this book.
