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!

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
