    Truly hideous. Looks more like a desert hare with a beard than an oryx. Can’t wait for the games šŸ™‚

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the above picture was the kid from Jongar. The star on the mascot’s T-shirt and the overall posture may have been the reasons behind that.

    I see. I knew Qatar had wild Oryx, wasn’t sure whether any were left these days or not.

    You are right, Natasha, it’s hideous. All I can make out is some resemblance to one of those Japanese cartoon characters that my kids like.

    First of all, I want to say ” why you are so angry about it???…….. I think that you are not discerning to understand what the oryx meen, because the oryx is the sample of Qatar, and the oryx is the most beautiful animal in Gulf, it has beautiful eyes and its very scarce in Gulf, and Qatar take care of all the oryx.
    and I think that you have to respect other countries, befor saying any word that mortify thier feeling.

    ahaha lol You’re right. But it’s not the Oryx that is at issue here. It is a lovely animal and obviously, it’s greatly respected and well protected in Qatar. It’s this huge colored blow-up balloon that they stuck down on the Corniche. It seems to me that it mocks the natural, wonderful qualities of the real animal. It’s not anger that either of us felt so much as frustration. They took something that Qatar cherishes and it commercialized it and in such a tacky manner. That is hideous!

    I think he is SUPER CUTE! Its a great character design. those who hate it can’t create HALF of what the charecter designers did. The name is suitable and so adorable, and just like what Rick over here said its the oryx a very great example of an animal that represents Qatar and the gulf countries. Have some respect. Losers with no taste piss ME off!!! >=(
