The Bronze, Hungarian, Larger-Than-Life Statue of Steve Jobs

The world converts its dead heroes into statues so quickly these days. Steve Jobs died on October 5. On December 21, a Hungarian software firm called Graphisoft unveiled a statue of Steve Jobs they commissioned from the sculptor, Erno Toth. The bronze sculpture sits in a private business park in Budapest.

It is an artifact of the world's love for the late Apple founder. It is also, for reasons that I can't quite parse, deeply weird. Take a look for yourself:
