This is a watercolour by Alfred Sharpe that shows the house where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840, as seen from Motumaire Island in the Bay of Islands (far north of the North Island of New Zealand) in 1882. Steep exposed rocks, with a number of trees growing on them, dominate the foreground. The Treaty House is visible in the background, in a gap between the rocks. The words 'Where the treaty of Waitangi was signed' appear in the bottom right-hand corner of the painting, which measures 21.3 cm x 36.1 cm.
