Photo-a-day 250: Golden Angel

20120907-191739.jpg

Emily Young is a renowned carver of stone, who has created a number of “Angel” sculptures, now scattered across the globe, all of which show the faces of angels.

This particular angel – the Golden Angel – is in Maingate in the Team Valley. It’s much bigger than it appears in the photo above! It was hand-carved from a huge piece of Persian yellow travertine stone, and weighs seven tons (not including the plinth). It was installed in 2005.
