Angel of the North (1)

Angel of the North (1)
The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture, designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, North East England.
It is Britain's largest sculpture and believed to be the world's largest angel sculpture.
It is one of the most-viewed pieces of art in the world, seen by one person every second (90,000 every day or 33 million every year).
Work on the sculpture started in July 1997 and it was assembled on site seven months later in February 1998.
The Angel was fabricated from 200 tonnes of weathering steel and is 20 metres tall with a wing span of 54 metres, almost as big as a jumbo jet.
It stands on a hill on the southern edge of Low Fell, overlooking the A1 and A167 roads into Tyneside.
