Located in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North is one of the world’s most famous sculptures. With a wingspan of 54 metres – which is larger than a Boeing 757 aircraft – it’s said to be the largest sculpture of an angel in the world.
Since it was completed in 1998, Gormley’s Angel has become a popular symbol of the North East region and the area’s industrial heritage. But the sculpture hasn’t always been so admired: in fact, many people thought it might cause accidents by distracting drivers on the motorway.
This design shows the Angel of the North on a lovely summer’s day, its distinctive rusty colour backed by a blue sky – the perfect thing to brighten up your kitchen!
