The ‘Angel of the North’ sculpture was unveiled in Gateshead in 1998 and has since become one of the most iconic and celebrated landmarks in the world.

The human figure is a dominant theme in Gormley's work and many of his sculptures including the ‘Angle of the North’ reference his own body.

This maquette, produced by Gormley during the development of the work as first displayed in 1997 in an exhibition at Greenesfield British Railway Works which aimed to introduce the public to the scale, design and concept of the ‘Angel of the North’. The maquette was used by Gormley to cast the bronze replica of the Angel that is on display at Gateshead Civic Centre.
