Louise Bourgeois @ Tate Modern, London

This gigantic spider that is been displayed outside Tates Modern is Louise Bourgeois’s most famous works. Louise Bourgeois said “this spider sculpture symbolises her mother” because she had the personality of a spider which are deliberate, clever, patient soothing, reasonable, dainty, neat and useful “. 

The spider sculpture has a very large scale comparing it to human size. The Picture below shows the aerial view which shows the Tates Boat passing by. I think this is a very good picture which captures the activities, the sculpture and the Tate Boat on the Thames.

Its Structure:
The spider sculpture is made up of Bronze Stainless steel;

The Spider sculpture is sheltering a sac full of eggs under her abdomen. The material used for the eggs is Marble. As shown below:
