On the rectangular oil painting by Kurt Stimmeder, is a young woman with a red towel turban on a black background to see. She holds in one hand an alarm clock and in the other a pomegranate, which she is about to put on the pan of the scales standing in front of her. On one of the scales is a pea, which, as can be seen from the pointer of the scales, outweighs all the fruits in the other scales. The fruits of this scale bowl are fertility symbols, which, like the pomegranate, also stand for sexuality - no matter what she puts on the bowl, it will not outweigh the pea, which stands for the sexual demands of her partner. With a slightly averted gaze, she looks lost in thought from the picture - her lifetime is running suggests the alarm clock in the other hand.
