Very interesting! I saw the same arachnoid sculpture in the QNCC convention center in Doha, Qatar. You can find it on Google by entering "QNCC spider". Unfortunately, I did not have any camera on me at that time, but I also thought it would be a perfect choice for an excellent picture.

Where is this place, Ilove the shot but the sculpture of the biggest spider I have ever seen is creeping me out! As I have severe Arachnophobia!
