If you have been to the Corniche, you couldn't have helped but notice a massive figure, holding a torch and dressed in gym shorts, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes. Do you know is this? It’s Orry the Oryx!
Orry is the mascot for the Asian Games 2006 that was hosted by Qatar and was selected as the country’s unique national identity especially for the Games. This 30-foot animal mascot was revealed in Doha with a lot of pomp and fanfare and a colourful ceremony at the Corniche before the games. The giant Orry statue was also revealed on the Cornice – tall and striking.
