Digital collage comprising three elements layered to form a self-portrait of Taranaki artist Dale Copeland. The background layer is a dusky brown colourfield from which a photograph of Copeland at age 5 emerges on the left. A colour photograph occupies the ceter of the composition and slightly overlaps the figure of the five year old girl. The colour photograph shows Copeland age 40 reflected in a mirror. A doll's head, a human skull and a blue vase of pink flowers overlap the reflection. The photograph has a white boarder. An x-ray taken of Copeland's right hand when she was 69 years old reaches up and over the other two elements from the lower right of the composition. Copeland was wearing a thumb ring when the x-ray was taken, it appears as a startlingly white loop on the skeleton thumb in the image.

View of Marsland Hill from the north west with full moon rising in the south east. Barracks on top of hill with steps curving down and towards foreground. Charles Brown's grave in left foreground.

Marsland Hill provided the single most important European military establishment of the Taranaki Wars. First occupied in 1855, it provided the headquarters for Imperial troops and local forces in Taranaki until the Armed Constabulary period of the 1870s and 1880s. The site was a former pa, Pukaka, and to provide a sufficient platform for the barracks and stockade, twelve metres had to be removed from the top. The iron clad barrack buildings which were erected on top of the hill arrived from Melbourne on the "Alexander" in June 1855. Marsland Hill was at the centre of an extensive signaling system throughout the First Taranaki War and for part of the second war. Three or four canvas wicker balls were raised or lowered on the yards of a signaling mast. At its greatest extent the signaling system reached the Waitara River to the north and St George's Redoubt in the Tataraimaka Block to the south.
