Louise Bourgeois Spider
This piece is amazing. The spider looks so life like that it is stunning and slightly terrifying at the same time. The spider looks as though it could come to life any minute and start attacking the city below it. I liked the piece because of the dimension and the detail that is seen in the piece itself. The sculpture is bronze and then plated with a silver nitrate. The pieces were all casted and then molded and then the beautiful spider creature was assembled. The spider resides in numerous locations which are temporary or permanent including Canada and New York City.
