Yes,it`s all relative, but considering we`re stuck here on this "tiny" planet, and within these tiny bodies and minds, then our reference needs no discusion. For me, both tiny and very large works, have particularities which makes them tougher to deal with than a convinient scale found somewhere between those extremes. Again moderation seems the most convinient, and where a better balance of detail/size is attained. However, I find "little" significance of a tiny elephant sculpture. The opposite seems to make more sense, like a huge flea...
