At one of the busiest motorway junctions in Germany a 7.50-meter-high steel sculpture "Yellow Angel" is set as a "monument" to the saviors of the ADAC Air Rescue. Designed by the internationally renowned artist Alfred Gockel on behalf of the German Automobile Club. It is divided into a group of eight angels, who wear an original ADAC Rescue Helicopter on their shoulders. At the manufacture of metal design Polenz the eight carrier-angels were cut by laser from a two-inch-thick steel plate. Each five feet tall angel figure weighs five to six tons. The completely gutted ADAC rescue helicopter weighs 1.3 tons. This first-ever art installation at an motorway junction in North Rhine-Westphalia was set up on the hill in the northwest section of the motorway junction at night on the 9th September. With approximately 190,000 vehicles per day it is a predestined location for the drivers from Hannover or Bremen to see it as welcome signal of the Ruhr Area and of ADAC Westphalia. Hallmark of the artist are colorful, often abstract images or long-legged bronze or steel sculptures.
