Big World is Part 2 of a series addressing patriarchal myths and realities. Man is coming to terms with his guilt and attempts to wash away his inherent oppressive behaviour. Using Sisyphus as a figurative symbol of the potential backlash, a man tries to see the forest, but all he sees are the trees. A woman is not entirely absolved, for the myth and the pedestal are perpetuated by her doing as well. The rock representative of patriarchy's weight is not a fixed one, for it is different with each individual.
