Heaphy, Charles 1820-1881 :[Whakari or White Island ; view of the crater looking north-west from crater margin. Ca 1850]
Reference Number: C-025-018
Two Maori men waving or pointing to two European men, who are throwing rocks on the ground ahead of them to test its firmness. The steaming crater lake is surrounded by hills, with a geyser or fountain of hot water in the background. One of the two Europeans is likely to be a self-portrait by the artist.
