Louise Bourgeouis - Maman 1999

Theresa Spath

I think Louise Bourgeouis is a very interesting sculptor. In this sculpture, she created a spider which she says is a symbol of her mother. It stands at over 30 feet tall in Ottowa and is one of the largest sculptures created in the world. Many of her sculptures have to do with influences of her upbringing, sometimes good but sometimes bad. I think it is amazing that she worked as a sculptor for so many years of her life and she has so much influence of sculptors still today.
