Enough small humans for the spider to pick and choose...

Excellent composition Robert. Love the lighting but the spider...

Maman is a monumental steel spider by artist Louise Bourgeois 19112010, so large that it can only be installed out of doors, or inside a building of industrial scale... I took some pictures of it some years ago when it was exhibited in Moscow in front of the Modern Art Museum in the Gorky Park..
p.s. an excellent shot, Tony, love the viewpoint and the blue ambience

Leo, thank you for the information on the spider.
This photo was taken at the Guggenheim in Bilbao. I believe there are 2 spiders outside of the museum and this giant dog made of is my understanding that these are meant to be there permanently as part of an attempt to make urban areas more alive and exciting.

Human ants, about to be swallowed up. And yet more are arriving all the time... I love this, it's dark and brooding. An I Wish I Had Taken It moment...

dear all, thank you for your comments.
it is interesting to see that such sculptures in the public realm work well and attract people. I was told that on any given weekend people in Bilbao take their friends for a walk around the museum.. that is what good architecture and public realm can design achieve... it is however costly. i believe the total construction cost of this building was never disclosed. but it is generally believed that it was a pricey affair as Gehry worked for the first time with this special design software that would make him through his architecture famous.

Leo, no worries.. I was once called Victor... and that guy lived to tell the story..Grin
Hi Moira, thank you for your remark, that means the image does have merit..
