Untitled [Maori girl with parasol, cloak and crown]
Full length potrait of a Maori girl aged 6-11 years, wearing European clothes, a woven crown and a Maori feather cloak (kahu kiwi), and holding a light coloured parasol in her right hand.
The taniko border on the cloak appears to be painted rather than woven. There is a studio backdrop, and various potted plants around her.
