Image title: Newcastle-


The Angel of the North is a giant winged statue made of steel with a rusted surface. It was designed by sculptor Antony Gormley and stands above the A1 near Newcastle. It is built on a small mound surrounded by a park with views over County Durham. A man stands below the structure - he is about the same height as the Angel's foot.

The Angel of the North has to be seen to be believed. In stereo the giant wing juts out of the picture and the mound stands out against the background sky. The man at the foot of the statue gives us a sense of the scale of the statue.
