Regular Women and Spider Women

This is such a fun picture.  These sculptures are part of an exhibit on the top floor of the Whitney Museum of American Art.  The way they suggest you visit the museum, is to take the elevator to the eighth floor, and work your way down, gallery by gallery.  There are several of these astounding female sculptures in one area, and they are all named "Spider Woman" followed with by a roman numeral.  The artist is Liz Craft.  I was in close, working on the composition when a woman appeared behind the sculpture, then another and another!  They were having their picture taken by a friend.  I thought that the contrast between the sculptures and the women made the picture much more interesting.
