Outside the Centre Pompidou in Paris, a couple of Gaulois-smoking workmen were in the process of cementing a new sculpture in place.
They informed us that it represents the French football player Zinedine Zidane (very French-sounding) headbutting the Italian Marco Materazzi during the World Cup final in 2006.
The sculpture is approx. 5 m high, and is made by an Algerian sculptor, Adel Abdessemed.
I think that ZZ on the left is short-sighted and is merely trying to read what is embroided on Marco's commerative final shirt...what do I know?
Many thanks for all recent comments - they are appreciated.
