Artist unknown :Maori Conference ; before ; after. [ca 1880]

Reference Number: A-279-003

Cartoon showing Maori man about to tuck into an enormous plum pudding with a large plate of meat to one side, in the "before" view; and looking very well-fed and fat with many empty plates on the table in the "after" view. The image probably refers to one of the series of conferences at Orakei in 1879, 1880 and 1881, to discuss and ratify the terms of the Treaty of Waitangi, 1840. The image implies that the Orakei Conference was simply an excuse for gluttony.
