Angel of the north

Angel of the north
The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture, designed by Antony Gormley, located in Gateshead in Tyne and Wear, England.

Completed in 1998, it is a steel sculpture of an angel, 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with wings measuring 54 metres (177 ft) across. The wings do not stand straight sideways, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward; Gormley did this to create "a sense of embrace".

why is it that England seems to have grander sculptures than the united states? (maybe we would need a relative larger scale due to our physical size - more on mt rushmore scale?)
