01.11.2022 World cup 2022: New sculpture "The Urge to Win"

The largest and main Victory Work dedicated to Qatar 2022 was sculpted in Switzerland, with that phase of its creation reaching completion in August 2022. Viewed from different sides, its outlines take on completely distinct shapes: Depending on the observer's point of view, it is a traditional Qatari dhow, a flame, the stylized blossom of a desert rose, a football, the head of a falcon, and the world cup trophy. In the steps between these different aspects, they mix and merge, becoming abstract. Seen from the right point of view, they reveal themselves to be perfect.

This fascinating artistic technique, unique to the works of David Pflugi, is thereby put in service of presenting a series of motifs which has been carefully chosen to pay homage to both the culture and traditions of the Qatari nation, and the global fascination of football. This astonishing work sits on a base sporting a highly detailed, partially abstract relief, on which the players of the 2022 finalist teams are foreseen to place their signatures. Fully assembled, the work measures approximately 4.35 m in width, 3.15 m in height, and 1.35 m in depth. It bears the title The Urge to Win.

Although the sculpting of the object was completed in Switzerland, the final step of the object's creation is being carried out entirely on location in Qatar. It is being painted in the pop-up studio space in Mina District (Old Doha Port) during November and December 2022.
