Along Came A Spider

One of the many iterations of Louise Bourgeois's Spider, this one in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City. Louise made a buck or two off this idea. I've seen them at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and London's Tate Modern. No idea how many there are but it is always arresting for the first time viewer. After too many encounters maybe you're ready to reach for a can of Raid.

Note the sign on the wall of the building in the background.

The larger one she did, Maman, that's at the Tate, also has copies at the Guggenheim in Bilbao and right here in Ottawa at our National Gallery. This one looks a bit different, but you can see it's the same artist straight off.
