Where in the World (391)

Answer to edition 390

The distorted image features a spider-like sculpture called Maman by Louise Bourgeois. In all there is one original and six subsequent castings. These are in seven permanent locations around the globe. Relying on the sculpture alone to identify the city is therefore a little difficult. This is further complicated by the fact that the sculptures have been on tour as well.

It is the building in the background that is the biggest clue to the identity of the city. It is the National Gallery of Canada and is found in Ottawa.

This week's distorted image

The distorted image this week shows a city skyline from one of its best known view points. There are a few clues to its identity but you will need to look carefully. Good luck.
