[Brees, Samuel Charles], 1810-1865 :[Porirua Harbour. ca 1842]

Reference Number: B-031-028

Shows Maori gathering shellfish on the rocky shore. There is a single-sailed canoe in the water at the right, and several canoes are drawn up on the shore around the bay at the left.In a similar work (identical shoreline in the foreground) at C-126-025, and the engraving (Plate 3, illustration 8) in "Pictorial illustrations of New Zealand", it is thought that the view is from the Whitireia side, looking northeast towards the entrance to Paremata Harbour. In contrast, this view shows a continuous shoreline at the left, suggesting that it is a view from Mana or Plimmerton, looking south-east towards the narrow entrance to Paremata Harbour.
