[Walsh, Philip] 1843-1914 :Scene of natives ploughing, Wai-iti. July 15, 1879.
Reference Number: E-357-038/039
Shows a horse standing in an open ploughed field, with the peak of Mount Taranaki in the background. Likely to be the preliminary drawing for Walsh's 'Maori ploughing settlers' land, 1879', showing an act of civil disobediance in protest at the European takeover of Maori land. The incident in question involved the arrest of Maori ploughmen on Jury's farm at Tikorangi - however this preliminary drawing shows only the landscape, ploughed land and a single horse, without the people.
