Arc Majeur, an XXL Sculpture
In our second episode, “Can I Touch It?” we introduced you to the English sculptor Antony Gormley. Our favourite Gormley masterpiece, "The Angel of the North", stands tall on the panoramic hilltop, capturing the character of the region, the site of a former coal mine. Overlooking the busy A1 motorway in Gateshead, the steel sculpture reigns 20 metres tall, with wings measuring 54 metres across. While an in-person visit is crucial to truly grasp the breathtaking magnitude of this steel spirit, these measurements indicate its “XL” size.
