Description

Group portrait of four men and a woman. Angas' associated text states 'the sitting figure is Terawarewa, a young man of the Nga-ti-Awa tribe, wearing a large mat of various colours, over which is an ample blanket. His cheeks are ornamented with a spot of Kokowai, or red ochre mixed with oil. The centre figure represents a boy of Taranaki, with his autograph. He is clad in a very thick and rough kakahu [rain cape] and holds in his hand a tokotoko or walking stick ... The girl [on the right] Ko Repu, is daughter of the principal chief of the Ngati-Ruanui tribe. She wears a necklace of European manufacture with a tiki and ear-ring of green jade. Below is her autograph. In the background are Piko, a young man of the Nga-ti-Awa tribe and Aitu, a half-caste of the whale fishery'.

Angas visited New Zealand in 1844
