📌 Anthony Gormlay, Angel of the North, 1998, Gateshead, England. 🇬🇧 ~ It is a contemporary steel sculpture of a graceful angel, standing 20 m tall, with wings measuring 54 m, across. The wings themselves are not planar, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward, which Gormley has said aims to create “a sense of embrace”. It stands on a hill, on the southern edge of Low Fell overlooking the A1 road and the A167 road into Tyneside and the East Coast Main Line rail route, and just south of the site of Team Colliery. ~ Ever seen this sculpture?
