The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, England.
As the name suggests, it is a steel sculpture of an angel, standing 66
feet (20 m) tall, with wings measuring 178 feet (54 m) across — making
it wider than the Statue of Liberty's height. The wings themselves are
not planar, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward, which Gormley has said
aims to create "a sense of embrace".

How's the composition?
