I’ve long had a strange reaction to spiders - they both creep me out and fascinate me (yes I wll submit myself to my fears for morbid curiousity). When I first saw a picture of Maman I knew I had to go see it. Of course at the time I think it was in Paris (or London) so that makes it a tiny bit more likely I have that “must see” feeling about something. I was THRILLED when I saw that there was now one at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. So pleased indeed that I visited it on more than one occasion and I waited paitently until all the tourists were out of the shot so I could get this picture. You can read more about Maman HERE.
