First Statue of Steve Jobs Unveiled
The bronze statue of Jobs stands 6.5-feet tall, and depicted the late Apple co-founder in his trademark attire of jeans, turtleneck, and little round glasses.
The statue was commissioned by the founder of Hungarian software company Graphisoft, Gabor Bojar, in mid-October—just days after Jobs had died—and crafted by Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth.
The company that develops software for architects had a history with Jobs since 1984—when Jobs came across some of Graphisoft’s software and decided to help the company out.
“Apple’s support included cash and computers at a time when Graphisoft was a small company with limited resources, working within the economic and political confines of what was, at the time, communist Hungary,” Bajor said.
“Apple also introduced Graphisoft to its worldwide distribution network, which we rely upon to this day.”
