Imagine-Art: Maman

For posts on all Murals, Sculptures and Artwork I have come across, go here.

Prologue: I am always amazed at imagination that artists use various colors to bring to life on a wall. And so also that they create with any kind of metal. These are some of those murals, sculptures and any kind of amazing artwork that I came across in my travels and adventures.

I am not a huge fan of spiders and other similar critters. But this one I was awe at when I saw in Ottawa, Canada – the Maman, a 30 ft. high and 33 ft. wide bronze, stainless steel and marble sculpture. Created in 1999 by artist Louise Bourgeois, he also included a sac containing 32 marble eggs and its abdomen and thorax are made of ribbed bronze.

It awed me and at the same time scared me to look at such a huge spider sculpture. We tried to mimic fright as the spider is trying to swoop in on us. But I couldn’t stop laughing so it made it a funny photo instead. 😛
