Antony Gormley Talks About The Angel of the North

Creator: illuminationstv    Length: 2 min  34 sec

The Angel of the North is a familiar site to motorists traveling on the A1. Whether you're a big fan of the sculpture, or not, this interview with its creator Antony Gormley is very interesting.

You can watch lots of great shots of the Angel while you listen to Antony talk about the thinking behind the sculpture, and what he was trying to achieve with its design, and his questions about how relatively new technologies such as flight have changed us as human beings.

The Angel of the North weighs 200 tonnes, stands 20 metres tall and has a wingspan of more than 50 metres (more than a 757 aircraft in fact). It's Britain's largest sculpture and fast becoming an iconic landmark of the North East.
