I must acknowledge Yan Hay, TE member from Ottawa from whom I came to know about the existence of these species in my city.

This bronze spider is called Maman, it is one of the six spiders cast by renowned Franco-American artist Louise Bourgeois as a tribute to her mother. It was created in 1999 and cast in 2003.

This massive bronze spider was intalled outside the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa in May, 2005 at a cost of $3.2 million, it was gallery's most expensive purchase ever.

The sculpture, which carries 26 white marble eggs in its underbelly, looms over the gallery's plaza, standing 9.25 metres tall and weighing 6,000 kilograms.
