Steve Jobs Statue to Be Erected in Hungary
There is no shortage of admirable statues in Budapest, Hungary. But it looks like a new face is soon to join the Magyar pantheon: late Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Hungarian tech company Graphisoft has commissioned a bronze statue of Jobs that will be unveiled Dec. 21. As the Associated Press reports:
Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth's statue depicts Jobs with all his trademark characteristics -- a mock turtleneck, jeans and sneakers, round glasses and well-trimmed stubble.
The nearly 7-foot-tall statue weighing 220 kilograms (485 pounds) will be placed in Graphisoft Park, a Budapest complex home to several high-tech businesses.
Given the magnitude of the tributes to Jobs following his death in October, we're guessing that some larger statues of the former Apple CEO are yet to be unveiled (see monument to late North Korean dictator Kim Il-Sung, above).
