This is a Sculpture from the French artist Louise Bourgeois (now leaving in the US). In Louise Bourgeois works the spider is a representation of her own mother. To her this representation is in no way gruesome or of a monster. Through this sculpture, she wanted to represent the protective mother (you can hide under her and be protected) and the fragile mother (those thin legs can be easily broken). The other analogy between the sculpture and her mother is that her mother was an embroideress which pretty similar to the spider that embroider a web.

There are anothers spiders sculptures from the same artist in Paris, Japan in Spain etc. In this care I like the persons passing by the spider there are many feelings in thsi pic.
