The Angel of the North, Gateshead's Winged Wonder

The Angel Of The North

…inspired vision, or earth-bound folly?

What kind of angel is this,
standing so boldly as some sort of sentinel
overlooking the A1 as it approaches Tyneside?

“The Angel of the North” seems destined to become a new symbol for Tyneside and one of the most recognisable landmarks in England. The aim of these pages is to offer some thoughts about Britain’s largest sculpture, and what if anything it might have to say about the human condition as we enter the new millennium.
