Size difference (big) between .orig.tar.gz and .deb: why?

I just wonder: I make a package with only a 17kb copyright file and a small
control file in addition to what is in my .orig.tar.gz file, and I get:

1427032 Sep 19 23:28 povray3-manual_3.0.10-1_all.deb
1352325 Sep 19 23:26 povray3-manual_3.0.10.orig.tar.gz

What can explain this 72kb difference in size? Is one of the files
more compressed than the other one, or is it because of the .deb
