If you’ve had a chance to visit Ropponggi Hills, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a big spider like sculpture in the middle of the courtyard. It has 8 tall legs and has a sac under her belly, which carries 26 marbles. The landmark is iconic, eye catching and both creepy at the same time. I was curious of what the sculpture is and who created it was, but I didn’t have a chance to look around for any information on site. I soon forgotten about it.
One day, I was watching a National Geographic TV show on Guggenheim Bilboa and noticed that it has a similar sculpture erected outside the building. How on earth two similar sculptures can exist half way around the globe apart from each other? It must be one important art.
