A Giant Spider

By Luphil

This morning on the way to my office I saw the spider in front of the Swiss National Bank building (left) and the Government (right) – a work of art entitled “Maman”, by the New York artist Louise Bourgeois, it is there for 10 days…. Quite symbolic. The artist called her work “maman” because her mother was busily engaged in keeping the family together, like a spider.
