National Gallery of Canada – Ottawa

National Gallery of Canada - Ottawa

EXPLORED! My wife got a cool picture of one of the exhibits at the National Gallery Art Museum in Ottawa.

In May, 2005, The National Gallery of Canada acquired the Louise Bourgeois’ spider sculpture Maman.

Maman, a 30-foot-tall (9.25 m), giant bronze spider carrying a sac of 26 pure white marble eggs under her belly, is the last in a series of six bronze versions of the work that have travelled the world, from the Rockefeller Center in New York to the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo and the Samsung Museum of Modern Art in Seoul, South Korea, have each acquired a bronze cast. Of the other two, one is on long-term loan to the Hermitage, and the other is on display in Havana, Cuba. A unique steel version is on loan to the Tate Modern in London, England. For more information please go to www.gallery.ca/english/548_1039.htm
