Hot Water Cups, White Terrace (gelatin silver print; Charles Spencer (New Zealand photographer, 1854-1933); 1880-1885; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; O.000766/1)
Note: In the nineteenth century the Pink and White Terraces were considered the eighth wonder of the natural world, attracting tourists from afar in search of the exotic. New Zealand painters and photographers produced myriad views that were widely exhibited both locally and internationally and that served as advertisements and souvenirs. Photographs such as this view by Charles Spencer entranced viewers with their depictions of the unique 'crystal and coral cups, bowls and basins set in stalactic filigree worked by Mother Nature in the vanished ages'. (Rebecca Rice, 2009)
