Perspectives and the Weight of the World
The image is of course that of the Greek god Atlas holding up the world. In Greek mythology Atlas was a symbol of strength and endurance.
Funny though, in this particular depiction it appears to me that the weight of the world is forcing him to his knees. It is interesting how perspectives can change depending on one's state of mind.
I wonder what would happen if he just lay down and let it role off.
He'd probably feel a whole lot better.
