- Shows part of the outer palisade of the Ngati Toa pa "Taupo" on the mainland at present day Plimmerton. The island of Mana is in the centre distance. In the foreground are canoes belonging to Ngati Toa and there are flax bushes growing in the left foreground. A figure in a striped blanket sits in the left foreground. Angas visited New Zealand in 1844. The Ngati Toa pa "Taupo" was probably built and occupied before the Wairau Affair of 1843, where a number of Ngati Toa and Europeans (armed constabulary) were killed in an armed encounter. However, it was'nt until after that incident that large numbers of Ngati Toa returned from the South Island for fear of reprisal attacks from settlers to re-populate the Wellington-Porirua-Kapiti disricts in large numbers again. This pa is mainly associated with Te Hiko-o-te-Rangi, a paramount chief of Ngati Toa, and his uncle Te Rauparaha. Other Titles - Taupo Pa Quantity: 1 colour art print(s).
