BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — In the Hungarian capital, Steve Jobs has been cast in bronze.

Graphisoft, a Hungarian software company, will unveil a bronze statue commemorating the co-founder of Apple on Dec. 21 in recognition of his leadership and vision, and appreciation for Jobs’ support of the fledgeling firm while Hungary was still under communist rule.

Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth’s statue depicts Jobs with all his trademark characteristics – a mock turtleneck, jeans and sneakers, round glasses and well-trimmed stubble.

The nearly 7-foot-tall statue weighing 220 kilograms (485 pounds) will be placed in Graphisoft Park, a Budapest complex home to several high-tech businesses.
