The giant spider sculpture is officially titled “TaranTula” and was created by artist Christina Sporrong at Spitfire Forge in Taos, New Mexico. The statue is 16-feet tall and constructed out of steel. It appeared at several music festivals before finding a permanent home in the parking lot outside of Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return. There are picnic tables installed underneath the giant spider to have a seat or enjoy lunch from an on-site food truck.
