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.
