Northumberlandia or "The Lady of the North" is a huge land sculpture in the shape of a reclining female figure located near Northumberland, England. The unique piece of public art is set in a 46 acre community park with free public access and 4 miles of footpaths on and around the landform. Designed by world renowned architect and artist Charles Jencks and built by the Banks Group as part of the restoration of the adjacent Shotton surface coal mine, the sculpture is made of 1.5 million metric tons of earth, and is 112 feet (34m) high and 1,300 feet (400m) long. The inspiration for the landform comes from the distant Cheviot Hills, which are pulled into the foreground by the curves and shapes of the female form used for Northumberlandia.
