Bill Cunningham’s latest On The Street photo essay returns to Paris. “Many members of the fashion world at the recent Paris shows,” he says, “seemed to pay homage to the look of a Louise Bourgeois spider sculpture in the Tuileries Garden. The spindly silhouette, it appears, has legs.”

    Maman, a 30 foot bronze spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois, lives in front of The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. Maman weighs 18,000 lbs and carries the most amazing treasure under her belly: a sac of 20 white marble eggs. I am in awe of Maman each May when I visit Ottawa and the Gallery with my dear friend, Eva. Ottawa received 52 cm of snow this past weekend, and I’m wondering how Maman and her eggs fared.

    Thanks, [Ms. M]. I’d love to see a photo of the spider in the snow, if you find one. I like the image of marble eggs in the egg sack.
