Shows full face head and shoulders portrait of Maori man with feather cloak, turkey feather above left ear, and moko.
A copy of this engraving, once thought to be the original for the engraving, is in the Rex Nan Kivell coll, National Library of Australia, Ref. NK2090. The original watercolour is much more likely to be that at A-237-042. (Much closer resemblance and image reversed). The ink copy in the Rex Nan Kivell Collection has an inscription, copying the title of the engraving, in the hand of Thomas Kendall.
Probably shows refer to Turi-a-kuna (Tooree Oganna), nephew of Te Pahi. See Journal of the Polynesian Society, vol. 8, page 211 (top of page), which incorrectly refers to him as a nephew of Te Pehi.
