The Spider, in folklore, is often associated with different creation myths because of their artistic weaving techniques in which they create their own world. Maxx Latte carved six spiders climbing up and down, not a water spout, but an antler tip. Spiders should not be feared but held in reverence, as Mark Bahti writes that spider is "wisest of all creatures" in his book Spirit In The Stone. This tribute to the wise weaver is about 5" tall and 1 3/4" deep including the natural curve of the deer antler.
Of all the arachnids, spiders form the largest group, with more than 3,000 species in North America alone. All spiders are predators. Most spiders have 4 pairs of eyes arranged in various designs on the front of their head. The hunting spiders eyes are arranged in such a way to enable them to see in all directions at once.
This absolutely gorgeous Spider by Michael Coble is carved of rich Picasso marble, and is about 3 3/4" long, 2 3/4" wide and 2" tall, with eyes of inlaid turquoise. We love its incised and furry abdomen and tarsal claws.
