The world’s first statue of the late Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs has been unveiled in Budapest, Hungary. Made of bronze, the statue stands nearby the entrance of architectural software maker Graphisoft’s headquarters.
“The statue was commissioned by Graphisoft founder and chairman Gabor Bojar,” reports TechCrunch. And, it was sculpted by the Hungarian sculptor known as Erno Toth.
Graphisoft and Apple go way back, when Jobs threw Apple support behind Graphisoft in 1984 when he took a liking to Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD software.
The statue was commissioned by Graphisoft founder Gabor Bojar. For those who are not familiar with Apple history, Apple and Graphisoft go way back. Jobs threw Apple support behind Graphisoft in 1984 when he took a liking to Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD software.
“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,” Gabor Bojar said.
