About the pics..

If you see pictures that belong to you - don't get pissy and complain to google. Just tell me, and I'll either remove them immediately or give you credit and a link - whichever you prefer.

No, it's not a photoshopped image. But is it real?

Yes! It's real alright. Called “Maman,” this giant spider sculpture is 30 feet high and 30 feet wide, with an egg sac containing 26 marble eggs.

The artist is Louise Bourgeois.

A stainless steel version is currently on loan to the Tate Modern in London, and another six bronze casts are located at National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Samsung Museum of Modern Art in Seoul and Havana in Cuba. So, be on the look out!

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
