"Giant Spider Sculpture"

Coming up the escalator from the Top Hat exit of Roppongi station you are faced with a giant spider sculpture known as Maman. It is one of a series created by Louise Bourgeois, a French-American artist and sculptor who died in 2010. Others exist at the Tate Modern in London, Kansas City, Ottawa, Bilbao, St. Petersberg, Seoul and Doha. Louise Bourgeois was known to say, "The Spider is an ode to my mother. She was my best friend. Like a spider, my mother was a weaver." The Maman sculpture outside Mori Tower is often used as a distinctive meeting place. -AH
