A seated Maori woman (Te Wainokenoke) wrapped in a blanket and flax cloak, to the left of Nohorua (with full moko and a grey beard). Nohorua wears a shark's tooth earring in his left ear and a greenstone pendant in his right, as well as a tiki around his neck, and is also wearing a blanket. Behind the couple is Nohorua's son, Tuarau, standing wrapped in a blanket. The group is depicted "in a potato ground, or clearing at Kahotea, between Takapuwahia and Titahi Bay - Porirua; in the distance is a cooking shed, thatched with nikau leaves. The chief is seated by the trunk of a tree-fern, and the bird [near the supplejack] is ... the fan-tailed fly catcher. E Wai, was recovering from an illness at the time of my visit, and had therefore been placed under a tapu so strict, that every spot of ground whereon she sat was rendered sacred for a certain number of days; one of these tapued places is represented ... fenced around with twigs that its sanctity may not be infringed upon."
Angas visited New Zealand in 1844
