A statue of late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs was unveiled in Belgrade on Monday, Mr. Jobs’ birthday. The bust is destined for installation at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, CA.
A scaled down model of the final obelisk design was unveiled on Monday by famed sculptor Dragan Radenovic, reports Netokracija.
The work was selected in a contest that included over 10,000 entries. The piece incorporates a bust of Jobs’ head mounted on a pillar. The sides of the pillar feature Cyrillic letters and the numbers 1 and 0, representing the binary numeral system. Sculptor Radenovic said Apple management appreciated the imperfections of the piece over more computer-centric designs.
The scale model that was unveiled on Monday will be sent to Apple HQ in California for final inspection, and upon final approval, Radenovic will create the final version. Once completed, the piece will stand between three and five meters tall, and will be installed at the Cupertino campus.
