Minister for the Arts, Allan Highet, leaning forward on a table, with a cross-looking bust in the shape of a piggy bank of Prime Minister Muldoon to his left. The bust of Muldoon includes the words '$532.7m extra tax take', while Highet is stating: 'We feel that $1 million is too much for anyone to win'. Refers to an incident when the Government made disapproving statements about the public's large lottery wins, while themselves 'winning' very large sums in taxation.
