The building being constructed in the background is the Mahinarangi meeting house at Tūrangawaewae Marae – which Te Puea Herangi herself had built. It continues to be a very important building to the Māori people.
As she tended to gardens both there and elsewhere, and she was temperate, she is here seen pouring out a beer to feed the plants.
She also tended pigs and looked after a large number of children – both are seen in the background.
The man on the left is modeled after Cyril Newhall, one of the pākehā with whom Te Puea Herangi worked most closely.
