[Gold, Charles Emilius] 1809-1871 :Scene of the Wairau Massacre, New Zealand [April 1851]
Shows a Maori warrior in the centre foreground, walking in a partly crouched position through low bushy growth, towards the right. He wears a feather cloak and carries a spear. To the left is a stream, flowing quietly between overgrown banks. In the centre background is a fencelike structure under the trees, part of the fencing surrounding the grave site. In the distance, a hill rises to the right.
Dated from the date inscribed on another view by Gold taken at the same spot (A-329-014).
The Wairau Affray took place in Tuamarina, Wairau Valley, on 17 June 1843.
