Shows Death wrapped in a hooded cloak and carrying a scythe gazing at a stork which flies overhead with babies in swaddling cloths dangling from its bill. Death comments that there are two words, 'death and taxes'. The comment is a weary response about the cost of living and the inevitability of death to the information from Statistics New Zealand that there is a birth every 8 minutes 49 seconds and a death every 19 minutes 35 seconds.
