Itsy Bitsy Spider...NOT!


This giant spider sculpture called "Maman" (French for "mother") by Louise Bourgeois stands ominously outside the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.


The artist was inspired by her mother to create this arachnid masterpiece, thus calling it "Maman." Up close you can see giant eggs in her sac! Miss Iggy sure doesn't want to get caught in her web of wrath!
