Groups of Maori seated in a pa by the Waikato River, with a pataka to the right, a small whare, several fences and a tent to the right, with a European standing outside it. A kete and two pigs in the foreground, two dogs to the right, utensils, clothing, oars and weapons draped over a palisade.
A scene observed by Angas during a four-month visit to New Zealand in 1844. The name Maurea is no longer current, but the area is likely to be between Taupiri and Mercer, where Angas travelled along the Waikato. In his 'Savage life and scenes of Australia and New Zealand' (1847) Angas describes his visit to Maurea on 30 September 1844 as being further upriver from the junction of the Puakia River (not a current name) with the Waikato and north of Taupiri. The group arrived at Taupiri on the following day.
