Lindauer, Gottfried, 1839-1926 :Hinepare of the Ngati Kahungunu tribe of Taakitimu fame. [ca 1890].

Reference Number: G-516

Shows a half-length portrait of a Maori woman wearing a tiki around her neck, pounamu earring and shark tooth earring, and two huia feathers in her hair. She wears a cloak with black fringe border, and has a moko design on her chin.Auction note: During the latter part of the 19th century, two chiefs came over to Hawkes Bay on an official visit. One of the chiefs took Hinepare as his de facto wife. Hinepare gave birth to Mere, who later married Peter Hiha. Apparently, Mere was almost identical in terms of looks to Hinepare, hence the painting could be a portrait of Hinepare or Mere.
