The Large create the Small.
My sister and I were having a conversation about my bf, about an hour ago actually. Very fitting to this piece.
The Large ones have the biggest egos, and they create the Small by making others feel inadequate, like something broken that needs fixing. The Small and belittle folk get eaten alive when they reach the point of giving up. The Small ones spend all their time trying to fix themselves into something more appealing to the Large. When what they should really be doing is saying, "FUCK you, I'm not the one that needs fixing!!!"

It is. I am thinking the mother is punishing her child. There is that 3 eyed demon that you made before which is coming out of her that will harm the child- almost like she is not consciously intending to, but that memory of the father which sprouts from her head is driving her on.
It is a great piece.

Thanks interesting interpretation seeing the central figure as a mother and the smaller as a child.

Instantly it looked like a mother changing a baby's diaper (when it was a small icon). The top of the head looks like a breast.
What does it really mean?

Yeah well you may be right. Your version is better than mine.

Maybe it is great because it is a mirror to the mind- but if I was projecting, I can't imagine what I am projecting.
