A Maori man and woman standing on shore holding weapons. The woman is wearing a cloak with green stripes and an orange underskirt. Around her neck hang two rows of red beads and one row around her upper left arm. Her hair is pulled flat on top and is frizzy and loose around the sides. She holds a tewhatewha in her left hand. The man wears a blue skirt with vertical stripes and wears a cloak pinned together below the neck with an orange tie. His hair is in a topknot style with an orange feather and an orange earring hangs from his left ear. He holds a long spear in his left ear and a green small object in his right hand-possibly a mere or club. In the background on the image is a man standing with arms upstretched to a palm tree possibly picking fruit from it.
