Angel of the North
18 íbúar mæla með ·
Completed in 1998, it is a steel sculpture of an angel, 66 ft tall, with wings measuring 177 ft across. The wings are angled 3.5 degrees forward to create, according to Gormley, "a sense of embrace". The angel, like much of Gormley's other work, is based on a cast of his own body.
Antony Gormleys Angel of the North stands 20 meters high just of the A1 welcoming visitors as they enter the city of Newcastle and Gateshead. You can pull up beside the Angel and walk to the sculpture. There is no fee for visiting the site.

“Jesmond Dene is a unique haven of peace and tranquility for the people of Newcastle. It is a narrow wooded valley that follows the river Ouseburn between South Gosforth and Jesmond Vale. This provides an important wildlife corridor right into the centre of Newcastle. There is a spectacular mix of native and exotic trees, and the Dene is home to a lot of wildlife, notably the Kingfisher, the Red Squirrel and many woodland birds. The Dene stretches for over three kilometres and has many areas of tranquillity, as well as ‘honey pots’ of activity. ”
