'Erebus' and 'Terror' in New Zealand, August 1841
One of a pair with BHC1215. This is an interpretation from the scientific expedition of James Clark Ross (1800-1862), to Antarctic waters, 1839-1842, with two ships& his own ship 'Erebus' and the 'Terror', under Commander Francis Crozier. The expeditionary ships 'Erebus' and 'Terror' are shown anchored in a bay, probably in New Zealand, where they wintered in 1840 and returned in August 1841. The nearer ship has lowered several open boats containing sailors preparing to meet the native craft positioned in the foreground. One Maori boat sails towards the British ship proffering gifts of fish, fruit, local produce and goods.
