Barraud, Charles Decimus, 1822-1897; Barraud, William Francis, 1850-1926

Shows two huts beside and end of the lake, one with a group of six Maori (probably three men and three women) five of them seated, in front of it. At the entrance way to the other a hut man is about to enter carrying a flat bowl with steam rising from it. In the centre foreground is a three?-legged cauldron. In the lake water at right a figure stands at the back of a canoe. There is a grassy island in the lake and beyond is flat-rolling land partly covered with bush.

Reader in 2005 suggests that this picture may show the Mahoenui kainga, burnt down in 1873, by Muaupoko tribe.

Verso shows pencil sketch of Maori woman carrying child beneath cape, and unfinished sketch of man with bird.
