Artist's Description

The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, England.
Taken with a Canon EOS 20D camera.

It is a steel sculpture of an angel, standing 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with wings measuring 54 metres (177 ft) across. The wings themselves are not planar, but are angled 3.5º forward, which Gormley used to create “a sense of embrace”. It stands on a hill on the southern edge of Low Fell, overlooking the A1 and A167 roads into Tyneside, and the East Coast Main Line rail route, south of the site of Team Colliery.
Work began on the project in 1994 and cost £1 million.
