Zidane’s Infamous World Cup Headbutt Immortalized

Soccer fans around the world will never forget Zinedine Zidane’s infamous headbutt delivered to Italian player Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup. Materazzi said something provoking to the Frenchman and he reacted by going temporarily insane within a blink of an eye. The headbutt ultimately led Zidane to be sent off with a red card, completely altering the match, and resulting in a loss for France.

Algerian sculptor Adel Abdessemed decided to immortalize the moment, which turned out to be one of the most dramatic sports events of the decade. The resin sculpture, titled Coup de tte, is part of Adel Abdessemed's exhibition Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf?, which recently showed at the David Zwirner gallery in New York City. According to the release, the show “brings together recent works that revolve around the themes of war, violence, and spectatorship.”
