Copy of an original carte de visite portrait, possibly of Ngāti Kahungunu rangatira Peni Te Uamairangi, half brother of Karaitiana Takamoana. Peni appears from the chest up, facing slightly toward his left. Dressed in a korowai adorned with dyed hukahuka, he has short, light-toned hair and a large moustache. The photograph is included on page 57 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
