Why is the sentence like that?

Hi everyone! I started lerning german recently and i saw the following sentence in my book: "Ich habe einen großen Kopf" Meaning - I have a big head

My question is that why is the adjective conjugated in accusative and not in nominativ? Why isnt it: Ich habe ein großer Kopf?

I hope someone can explain it to me:)

Because Kopf is the object and adjectives in German must agree with the case of the noun.


Ahh its clear now, thank you!:)
