Webber, John, ca 1750-1793 :The inside of a hippah in New Zealand. Rennoldson sculp. [London] Alexr. Hogg [1784?]

Reference Number: B-098-023

Shows a group of four Maori in the centre foreground outside a pa. Two other figures talk together on the ground to the left. Some whare constructed of reeds are seen behind them, on ground that slopes away to the lake or inlet in the background. There is a hill in the centre distance.See Joppien and Smith, volume 3, page 18, which suggests that the pa shown is probably the fortified village on the island of Motuara, visited by Cook on 15 February and by Anderson on 20 February. It was visited by Cook on his first voyage, and Furneaus had established his winter quarters there on the second voyage when it was also used as William Bayly's observatory. Between the second and third voyage, the pa had been rebuilt but was again deserted. This gave Webber an opportunity to sketch it from the inside.
