Mensagem:  It's a very good question. It seems like big is a strange word, and just like PPaulo has pointed out, big shows physical size. Big can also be used informally like "to make big", "to go big". In the phrase of greater length, I think that big would've destroyed the beauty of the phrase. I think the choice of words and avoidance of using big is really appropriate.
