1,300ft reclining woman sculpted into Northumbria landscape

Posted by David Smith on 10th September 2012


The worlds largest human form sculpted into the landscape - a 1,300ft naked goddess-like woman will be open to public next month. The sculpture which has been carved into the Northumbrian landscape will be visible from the air above Newcastle airport. For the hiking enthusiasts, this sculpture is also open to the public, and can be traversed by foot!

Designed by American artist Charles Jencks the work cost £3 million. Whilst not massivly popular amongst locals at the moment, it is hoped the Godess will achieve the same love and admiration as Antony Gormley's Angel Of The North just 12 miles further south.
