This engraving of a Māori warrior from Poverty Bay is a copy of a drawing by Sydney Parkinson from 1769. He holds both a short-handled and a long-handled weapon. The short one appears to be either a mere pounamu (greenstone club) or a patu onewa (stone club), while the long-handled weapon is a tewhatewha.
