Above are pictures of other works by the artist
When the Seattle Art Museum commissioned Louise Bourgeois to do a major fountain for the Olympic Sculpture Park, the artist added these functional sculptures as her gift to the park. The benches were designed by Bourgeois and carved by Italian stone masons from black Zimbabwe granite. Just like the eyes they're modeled after, the benches come in sets of two. In this case it's not only OK to touch the art, you can also go ahead and sit on it.
