Artists and designers often use maquettes to test ideas before producing the final form and these are rarely seen by the public. 

This maquette, produced by Gormley during the development of the Angel of the North, is made from plaster and balsa wood.

It was used by Gormley to cast the bronze replica of the Angel that is on display at Gateshead Civic Centre.
