The Angel of the North

The Angel of the North

The Angel of the North has stood looking over the A1 and A167 roads and East Coast Main Line (Railway) since 1998, therefore next year (2018) will mark the sculptures 20th birthday, let us hope that there is something special planned to celebrate this milestone. The sculpture was designed by Antony Gormley.

According to Gormley, the significance of an angel was three-fold: first, to signify that beneath the site of its construction, coal miners worked for two centuries; second, to grasp the transition from an industrial to an information age, and third, to serve as a focus for our evolving hopes and fears.

The Angel of the North is quite a sight when up close and due to its distinctive appearance and size it can be seen from miles around:

Completed in 1998, it is a steel sculpture of an angel, 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with wings measuring 54 metres (177 ft) across.[1] The wings do not stand straight sideways, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward; Gormley did this to create “a sense of embrace”.

Love it or hate it, the Angel represents reflection of the past and will remain ever present in the future ahead, which is important in these uncertain times ahead. It is a symbol of peace in many ways.

Finally, I found these wonderful films on YouTube that show the reactions to the Angel of the North in Gateshead, some people love it, while others are not so keen, which is definitely fine with the greatest respect to them.
