Description

Shows five diggers at work at a clay bank in a forest clearing. One of them is using a "long Tom" gold sluice. In their midst stands a figure in blue, with a long stick; he is either resting or supervising. In the background, a large kauri tree has been felled and is lying on the undergrowth. Beyond it can be seen the roof of a tent.
