Antony Gormley's Angel of the North.

Antony Gormley built this 208 ton, 20 meters or five-story tall steel structure with a wingspan of 54 meters called the Angel of the North in Gateshead, United Kingdom.

About the sculpture, from the website:

  • It is made of weather resistant steel, containing copper, which forms a patina on the surface that mellows with age
  • Below the structure are massive concrete piles 22 metres deep anchoring it to the solid rock beneath
  • The body is hollow to allow for internal inspections with an access door high up on a shoulder blade
  • It is built to last for more than 100 years and withstand winds of more than 100 miles per hour
