Steve Jobs Gets Immortalized with Statue in Hungary

Steve Jobs Gets Immortalized with Statue in Hungary

The good folks of Budapest, Hungary proved they've been thinking differently than a good number of other cities as they today got their first look at a new statue of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. 

Located in a Budapest science park, the statue is made of bronze and stands 6.5-feet tall. It was financed by a Hungarian software company called Graphisoft. Gabor Bojar, the founder of Graphisoft, said, "Steve Jobs made technology available to the masses first over the desktop, then in our pockets." He also said Jobs, who passed away on October 5 from a long bout with cancer, was the "creator of technology with a human face." 

The statue was designed and made by Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth and has Jobs in his signature denim and mock turtleneck. If you're wondering why Graphisoft decided to erect a statue of Steve Jobs, Bojar says Apple has been a support of the company since 1984 when Jobs saw it present at Germany's CEBIT International trade fair.
