Angel of the North - Kevin Radcliffe

About

Since spreading its wings in February 1998, Antony Gormley's The Angel of the North has become one of the most talked about pieces of public art ever produced.

Rising 20 metres from the earth near the A1 in Gateshead, the Angel dominates the skyline, dwarfing all those who come to see it.  Made from 200 tonnes of steel, it has a wingspan of 54 metres and a red-brown colour that comes from the weathering steel which can withstand winds of more than 100 miles per hour.
 
Getting up close and personal with the Angel is an experience you'll never forget!
 
For more information, including Angel facts, background and history, and how to get there see Gateshead Council's Angel of the North page.
