Here it is – the world’s first statue to immortalize Steve Jobs. Hungarian software company Graphisoft officially dedicated the statue this morning at their Budapest headquarters.
We reported previously that the statue was under construction, and Graphisoft was nice enough to drop a note to say that the statue was now complete. The statue is 7 feet tall, and is made entirely of bronze.
The statue is design to capture Jobs’ presentation style, and indeed it does look very much like Jobs typically did when giving one of his many famous keynote speeches.
I imagine this will be the first of many similar Steve Jobs tributes to come – hopefully we’ll get an awesome tribute like this in the U.S.!
From the press release:
Commissioned by GRAPHISOFT Founder and Chairman of the Board, Gabor Bojar, the statue is the first in the world honoring the late founder of Apple, who passed away on October 5. Crafted by Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth, the life-like bronze statue stands near the entrance of architectural software maker GRAPHISOFT’s Budapest headquarters.
