The Govan Angel
The Govan Angel
This gilded angel stands on the pavilion roof of NS5764 : The Angel Building (built c.1890, by Bruce and Hay). It is generally referred to as the Govan Angel (although it is technically located within Kinning Park rather than Govan). The identity of the sculptor is unknown, but James Ewing is a likely contender [Ray McKenzie, "Sculpture in Glasgow - an illustrated handbook"].

The angel appears as a landmark in NS5764 : Springfield Quay / NS5764 : Mavisbank Quay / NS5764 : Shields Road.
