Etching of a human figure on paper printed with the Defense Department organization chart. The source for the chart is given as the "U.S. Organization Manual 1983/84". The human figure huddles into itself, holding a baby to its chest in a tight embrace. Morris uses the combination of this human figure with the Defense Department chart to explore the concept of humanity. He believes that for someone to be capable of pulling a trigger, they must have lost their humanity and forgotten the love that exists between parent and child.

Jane Maria and Arthur Atkinson's house at Hurworth on Carrington Road. Depicts typical New Zealand colonial house with bay window at front - house slightly side on and backs onto a cleared hill.

On the reverse is an inscription written (also in pencil) by Jane Maria Atkinson which reads: "1 is at present the kitchen window. 2 our bedroom, but in another fortnight it will be the kitchen window and No. 1 our bedroom. We make the change because it is not convenient to have the room one sleeps in a passage room and that the sitting room and kitchen may be close together. 3 the bay window and 4 and 5 are sitting room windows, 6 window of Lely's bedroom. 1, 2, and 3 look due east to the Henui river. 4, 5, and 6 due North, we see towards the road from them, I shall have a wider view next year when the bush between our clearing and D. Atkinson's is to be felled. We see the back end of Harry's house from the North windows, he lies North west of us. The front door so to speak, is at the back of the house in a passage between the two bodies of the house and connecting them. The fence in the front is going to be moved so as to enlarge the garden considerably and the gate will be moved to the right a good way so that a path from it may lead naturally to the door."
