The Itsy Bisty Spider

Tarantula in rock climbing gear depicting The Itsy Bitsy Spider created for Mother Goose children's garden at Wichita Collegiate School.

This commission created a bronze tarantula wearing a rock harnass, 4 climbing shoes, and sporting a climbing pack strapped with climbing ropes and a helmet. Tarantulas are delicate spiders, and safety always comes first when climbing. The sculpture represents The Itsy Bisty Spider, in a new Mother Goose nature garden for preschool students at Wichita Collegiate School in Wichita, Kansas. The creative process can be seen at
