French-American artist and sculptor, Louise Bourgeois' "Maman," 1999 / Its abdomen and thorax are made up of ribbed bronze. In the late 1990s, Bourgeois began using the spider as a central image in her art. The sculpture alludes to the strength of her mother, with metaphors of spinning, weaving, nurture, and protection.

Louis Bourgeois   Looking for The Mother (2010)    Louis Bourgeois: “Art is the experience of, the re-experience of trauma.”  Ms. Bourgeois’ work was interior like her own, revolving around ideas of wombs and wounds.  “We both work with recurring themes as well. Things that come again and again in our life, that don’t go away. The damage may be done and you forget it, then it comes back again.”
