• Certain characters/objects are enlarged relative to other characters/objects, which thereby appear shrunken down

By enlarging a character or object, the artist can express a dominant, perhaps overbearing position held by that character/object. Or a character can be portrayed as overblown by his or her own self-image. Conversely, relatively shrunken characters/objects might reveal the subservient position of that character, self-imposed or otherwise.
