Merrett, Joseph Jenner, 1816?-1854 :[The Hobson album]. A meeting of visitors Mounganui. Tauraga in the distance. [1843?]
- Merrett, Joseph Jenner, 1815-1854
View of a powhiri or welcome between two Maori groups, outside Ōtūmoetai Pa, with the outline of Mount Maunganui in the background at the east entrance to Tauranga Harbour. Both groups are standing with bowed heads (remembering the dead) and some of the hosts are raising their arms, while some of the guests are seated, some standing. Two of the guests are holding taiaha, while one holds a tewhatewha (weapons).
There are two very similar drawings by Merrett in the Grey Album, British Library, Add. MS 19953, p. 58 plate 170 and p. 43 plate 124, both untitled. These lack the details of the pa palisade and Mount Maunganui in the background. The British Library drawings show only the two groups of figures
Other Titles - Maunganui. Tauranga
