The Angel of the North

  • Description

    Angel of the North is a modern sculpture designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, United Kingdom. As the name suggests, it is a steel sculpture of an angel, standing 66 feet (20 metres) tall, with wings measuring 178 feet (54 metres) across — making it wider than the Statue of Liberty's height. The wings themselves are not planar, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward, which Gormley has said aims to create "a sense of embrace".
