“Maman” is a huge steel sculpture of a spider which can be found by walking through the streets of Ottawa. The sculpture is cast bronze and stainless steel, and complemented by touches of marble. This unusual site is the brainchild of sculptor and painter Louise Bourgeois. Surprisingly, it worked on him at the age of 95 years. Such creative longevity is the envy of anyone.
Now a giant spider spread their nets at the entrance to the National gallery of Canada, which in turn is located in Ottawa. The gallery at the time, paid for possession of the sculpture of about 3.2 million dollars, then put it on public display. This is a very good thing art should be public, otherwise it loses its original meaning.
