Description Honiana Te Puni-kokopu, d 1870. Shows Honiana Te Puni-kokopu standing, with full facial tattoo, clad in a dogskin cloak and holding a taiaha in his right hand. Behind him is Wellington Harbour with two Maori by the shore to the left, and Petone Pa, a canoe and a flagpole with the New Zealand Company flag on the right. The western Hutt hills are in the background.

Accompanying text reads: These two chiefs sold the site of the present Wellington Settlement to Colonel Wakefield, the Principal Agent of the New Zealand Company, in September 1839... Epuni is the uncle of Warepori. Under the same unfavourable circumstances as his nephew, he has nobly deserved the name of "a true gentleman." He still lives at the village of Pitone, loved and respected by the English inhabitants of all ranks. These portraits were drawn at the time of the purchase in 1839... the village of Pitone and the flag-staff at the foot of which Colonel Wakefield took formal possession, appear in the back-ground.
