Head Butt statue of Zinedine Zidane is being displayed at Qatar's Doha Corniche. The 5 meter (16.4-feet) statue depicts the 2006 Football World Cup moment when French footballer Zinedine Zidane head-butted Italy’s Marco Materazzi.
Qatar Museums Authority has bought the famous 16.4-feet statue called “Coup de Tête” or “Head Butt” for an undisclosed sum. Gulf has bought this statue for the preparation of 2022 World Cup. It was created by a French artist Adel Abdessemed who was born in Algeria.
This famous Zidaneheadbutt statue is now installed in an outdoor location in Qatar at Doha Corniche near Al Mourjan restaurant. It was previously displayed outside the Pompidou center in Paris.
This statue was very popular in Paris. Jean Paul Engelen, QMA’s director of PublicArt, told Doha News, "Yes, we expect a lot of people to want to take photoswith it, and of it. It’s an impressive piece. It’s a huge sculpture, and it’s done in the same style as Greek Mythological statues, but this glorifies human defects instead. It shows that although we sometimes treat footballers like gods, they’re not - they’re just human beings.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year.
