Humanity's mixed reaction to spiders is most likely the influence behind The Spider Lady. On the one hand you have "Charlotte's Web" and the friendly creature we associate with our own Spider Lady. On the other hand, of course, is the deadly Black Widow. Since the females of this species eat the males, we tend to shy away from that reference. Instead, we honor the cunning of spiders as well as their craftsmanship. Like bats, people are afraid of spiders, but maybe The Spiderlady will prompt them to take a closer look at their magical, miniature world. Many people even collect these tiny creatures, especially when rendered in gold and covered with diamond.
