McDonald, James Ingram, 1865-1935 : Alarm in a Māori pa 1906.

A battle scene inside a fortified hilltop pa, with trumpets and conch shells being blown and weapons wielded. In the background on the hilltop to the left, a gong is being beaten.

Carved figures are prominent around the palisade in the right foreground. Several whare and pataka can be seen inside the pa, and groups of people are rushing about and gesturing towards the water below inthe distance.
