The Angel of the North is a modern steel sculpture of an angel in the city of Gateshead in the northern part of England in Great Britain . It is erected on the hill, on the southern side of Low Fell in Gateshead, keeping under its protective wings motorways A1 and A167 to Tyneside, and also the railway route East Coast Main Line.

Antony Gormley

The author of the world-famous sculpture is Antony Gormley, contemporary British sculptor. The Angel of the North is his most famous work of art. It shows all characteristic features of Gormley´s artistic style. The giant sculpture is made of steel. It is 20 metres tall and its wings measure 54 metres. The angel´s wings themselves are angled 3.5° forward, which evokes impression that the angel is to embrace somebody. The sculpture does not show any individual features. Author´s intention was a general expression, he did not plan to depict any specific individual, so the Angel of the North does not have any face.
