New Zealand was one of the first countries in the world to put pictures of the countryside, birds, and animals on its stamps. These stamps became known aspictorials and the first were issued on 5 April, 1898. The subject of this stamp is a modification of a design adopted by Māori for the ornamentation of sliding panels used as doors, 'tatau', employing the preferred colours of red, black and white. The initial printing of this stamp by Waterlow & Sons was in black and red, subsequent printings by the New Zealand Government printer resulted in many colour variations from slate-grey to black and red to scarlet.
