Maman the Giant Spider
You cannot miss Maman the Giant Spider, an urban art sculpture in Ottawa, Canada.
The National Gallery of Art in Ottawa has placed it in front of its entrance. As a matter of fact, Maman (French for Mother) is part of a series of spiders made by this French-Canadian artist, and it’s nothing to be scary. Louise Bourgeois – the artist, believes that spiders are good friendly creatures – she’s right. She made it in the memory of her own beloved mother. This is an artistic expression inspiring a mother’s love and protection. BTW: what you see in the middle, under her core body is a bag full of eggs.
However, as I like to take silhouettes and light/dark contrast photos, my picture below looks a little different. I wanted to show it a little like a creepy creature coming from outer space 🙂 After-all, the specter of Halloween is in the air. So here she is, Maman the giant spider mother in the light of Ottawa’s sunset:
I uploaded this one on my Fine Art America Gallery under Ottawa gallery and it’s available as art print.
