Head of Otegoongoon.
On his first Pacific voyage (1769-1770) James Cook visited the Bay of Islands, where Sydney Parkinson, the expedition’s natural history artist, sketched this illustration of Otegoongoon. By the end of the voyage, Parkinson had produced nearly a thousand drawings of plants and animals.
