- Bridge, Cyprian, 1807-1885
View of a pa with strengthened palisade walls, with musket-holes around the base, with fenced in potato plantations in front and to the right in the middle distance, with several people working in the plantations. A Maori man in the foreground is clad in a European shirt and Maori skirt and is smoking a pipe and there are several other people in the foreground. To the right of a path is a swampy area with fern or bracken and mangroves. Probably Tamati Waka Nene's pa at Okaihou. (Information from Chris Pugsley, military historian, 1995)
