"Louise Bourgeois’ "Maman

"Maman" by Louise Bourgeois is one of the most iconic pieces at the Guggenheim, this piece sits just outside the museum and, at nine metres high, towers over visitors. A giant spider made of bronze, marble and stainless steel, it was created in 1 and is one of Louise Bourgeois’ most ambitious projects. Made as a tribute to the artist’s mother, who was a weaver, it observes the protective nature of mothers, as the spider tries to protect the sack of eggs attached to its stomach.
