This is a circular pencil drawing on coloured scraper board, measuring 22.7 cm in diameter. It was drawn in the 1850s by Samuel Thomas Gill (1818-80). It depicts a European family of mother, father and small daughter interacting with an elderly Indigenous Australian man and two Indigenous children in front of the door of a primitive wooden house. The young girl, encouraged by her mother, is offering a plate of food to one of the children. The landscape in the background is bare and bleak. In the foreground a sheepdog sits, watching the people.
