And would you dare to play with a giant spider?

Sculptures usually are meant for observing and appreciating and never to touch. But this is an exception to the rules. Here, these two little cute wedding guests after a tiresome speech in the Cathedral ran out to attack the giant spider and play with it. It's good to see that to them it's not just a sculpture, but rather a character or living thing.


These pictures were taken at the National Art Gallery, Ottawa. It's a sculpture by Louise Bourgeois. She  was a renowned French-American artist and sculptor, best known for her contributions to both modern and contemporary art, and for her spider structures, titled Maman, which resulted in her being nicknamed the Spiderwoman. She is recognized today as the founder of confessional art. You can read more here or watch this video below:
