Head-Butt Statue

This brilliant statue by the Algerian artist Adel Abdessemed capturing the infamous moment when Zinedine Zidane’s (my all time favorite soccer player) head-butted Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup final was installed recently in front of the Centre Pompidou modern art museum in Paris.

I’m a big fan of Abdessemed: I previously chronicled here my visit to see his surreal airplane installation a few years back.
