Mitchell, Leonard Cornwall 1901-1971 :Rewi Maniapoto, chief of the Ngati-Maniapoto tribe, and heroic defender of Orakau in 1864. [1930s or 1940s?]
Head and shoulders portrait of Maori chief Rewi Maniapoto in flax cloak with a taniko border. He has two huia feathers in his hair and is shown with moko and a white moustache.
As this portrait was painted long after Rewi Maniapoto had died, it is likely to be based on a photograph. Compare, for example negative F-021458- 1/2 or F-005556-1/2, a photograph taken in 1879 that is very similar to this portrait.
