The open marae area of a pa, with low houses around the edge of the area, a brushwood palisade and the sea and hills beyond. In the foreground are two groups of Maori, one including a man leaning on a spear with others seated at his feet, the other with two men or women seated. The foreground area with the pa is thought to be Cook's 'Hippah Island', a now unnamed islet just south of Motuara Island in Queen Charlotte Sound, looking north, with the steep sides of Motuara Island rising beyond the pa.
