A colourful start for May . One of the local bus companies colours the buses according to the routes they are on. This example goes to the "Angel of The North" the public art statue pictured on the side of the bus.
The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, England.
It is a steel sculpture of an angel, standing 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with wings measuring 54 metres (177 ft) across. The wings themselves are not planar, but are angled 3.5º forward, which Gormley used to create "a sense of embrace".
It stands on a hill on the southern edge of Low Fell, overlooking the A1 and A167 roads into Tyneside, and the East Coast Main Line rail route, south of the site of Team Colliery.
