The Angel of the North sculpture has been dusted with snow
Antony Gormley's contemporary sculpture, The Angel of the North, can be found in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, England. This monumental artwork, believed to be the largest sculpture of an angel in the world, was completed in 1998 and is visited by around 33 million people every year, largely due to its strategic location close to major transportation routes like the A1, A167, and East Coast Main Line. Gormley's design for the Angel was inspired by his own body, a common theme in many of his works. The use of COR-TEN weathering steel is what gives the sculpture its iconic, rusty, and oxidized appearance. Standing at 20 meters (66 ft) tall with a wingspan of 54 meters (177 ft), larger than a Boeing 757 aircraft, the Angel's external skeleton consisting of vertical ribs on its body and wings directs oncoming winds towards its foundation, allowing it to withstand winds over 100 miles per hour (160 km/h).
Recently, a dusting of snow covered the Angel of the North, creating a striking winter scene that highlighted the sculpture's grandeur and magnificence. This awe-inspiring public artwork continues to captivate visitors from all around the world, and the recent snowfall added to its charm and allure.
