An ogre wearing chains (New South Wales) is courting New Zealand, portrayed as a classical maiden wearing a Maori cloak and protecting a Pacific Islander. In the right background, a female figure representing Federated Australia reads a book entitled "Self-government". The text below reports on a speech of the New South Wales premier promoting federation, and recommending that Britain not link the South Seas Islands to New Zealand. This hints at the reason for New Zealand's reluctance to join an Australian federation: New Zealand had plans that Pacific Islands would come under New Zealand's jurisdiction. Scatz also implies that New South Wales (the ogre) was attempting to impose federation on a rather reluctant group of Australian states.
