The Angel of the North and Don Quixote!

The Angel of the North.
The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture, located in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, England. It was designed by Antony Gormley. It is a steel sculpture of an angel, 20 metres tall, with wings measuring 54 metres across. The wings do not stand straight sideways, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward; Gormley did this to create "a sense of embrace".
