The Angel of the North

The Angel of the North
"Why an angel? The only response I can give is that no one has ever seen one and we need to keep imagining them. The Angel has three functions - firstly a historic one to remind us that below this site coal miners worked in the dark for two hundred years, secondly to grasp hold of the future expressing our transition from the industrial to the information age, and lastly to be a focus for our hopes and fears." Antony Gormley, Sculptor

Hans van Dongen, Annemarie, Campayo 2017, cammino and 12 other people have particularly liked this photo

Ah oui! Serein mais un peu menaceant, protecteur mais legerement extraterrestre.... je ne sais pas comment l'exprimer. Mais dans les buissons autour du site, des gens on mis des fleurs, des jouets, un ours de peluche, comme s'ils se fient a cet ange etrange

C'est très impressionnant en photo, je pense que se trouver devant cette monumentale et gigantesque sculpture,doit nous remuer au plus profond de notre être.
J'aimerais aller visiter un jour ce site qui contient l' histoire de vies tragiques et pénibles celle des mineurs de fond, et me trouver toute petite devant l'ange.

A lovely shot of this local landmark that I never tire of seeing although, I've yet to get up there myself with a camera. Got to say if that's the main path it doesn't look all that appealing! ;)
