Russia Pays Homage To Steve Jobs With Giant iPhone Statue

Russia Pays Homage To Steve Jobs With Giant iPhone Statue

A statute was unveiled in St. Petersburg, Russia this week to celebrate the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and the sixth birthday of the iPhone.

The St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics, and Optics is now home to a six-foot iPhone 4 sculpture. Constructed by designer Gleb Tarasov, the sculpture does not feature all the functions of a typical iPhone, such as the touch-screen, but it does display a photo and video slideshow of Jobs' life, including important events and well-known speeches.

A QR code on the sculpture links you directly to the memorial's website. For more on the beloved CEO, check out our Steve Jobs soundboard
