Description

Sea to the right, with a beach, with two women and a man on horseback. Low bushes in the centre right foreground, in the centre a Maori man in a flax cloak pointing twoards the sea and in conversation with a Pakeha man; two Maori walking away in a red and a black cloak; another man, apparently aiming a slingshot; and two other Maori figures, seated on the ground. Beyond the figures is an undulating plain, probably sandhills. In the distance are several ranks of higher hills.

Identification of the location suggested by the strong similarity of the line of hills in the background to those depicted in B-031-030, which Brees has titled Mana Pokerua [i.e. Mana Island and Pukerua]
