Coloured lithograph depicting the landing of Reverend Mr Creed at New Plymouth, Feb 1841. Situated on the Ngamotu Beach foreshore. Centre right:- Painting shows a vast number of Maori (in traditional attire) standing on beach awaiting the arrival of the ship's passengers. European male (Reverend J. Waterhouse) stands at water's edge - clothed in black suit with black top hat in right hand - supervising the disembarking and communicating to Maori male beside him. All Maori have very "Europeanised" facial features. Some are positioned in "Grecian poses" and many have a "Hawaiian sensibility" about them. They are surrounded by backdrop of trees with Mt Taranaki/Egmont in background. Left of painting:- European woman being carried ashore by group of Maori women. Behind them is a small row boat containing Reverend Mr Creed with three crew members unloading luggage. Waka and sailing ship can be seen anchored in the distance. NOTE: This is a New Zealand Print.
