Historical Notes: Norman was in New Zealand in the 1840s, and then appears to have returned in 1850. He was appointed to a surveying post in Kaikoura in 1852; but before and after that he travelled around as an artist. The original drawing for this work may have been done in 1850 or at any time in the early 1850s.
