the inhabitants of HuaHua Bay in New Zealand

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ (Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Bewohner von Houa – Houa”

(the inhabitants of HuaHua Bay in New Zealand)
Original lithograph from the graphic kit of the work “Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugetiere” printed by the swiss lithographer Honegger and published in Zurich between 1830 and 1835.
Nice example with some foxing stains around the subject otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
Beautiful representation of a Maori couple with their traditional dresses and accessories.
The man's face is full covered with the typical tattoos.
