A statue of the late Steve Jobs has been unveiled in Hungary, the first anywhere in the world honoring his memory.

The Hungarian architectural software maker, Graphisoft unveiled its tribute to the life and work of Steve Jobs at its campus in Budapest this past Wednesday. Created by sculptor Erno Toth, the larger than life bronze statue depicts Jobs holding an iPhone in his right hand while gesturing with his left. At his feet lies an iPad with the quotation: “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

The statue was commissioned by Graphisoft’s founder, Gabor Bojar who said Jobs’s work as an innovator and  entrepreneur had a profound effect on him. Designed to honor the relationship between Apple and Graphisoft, after the charismatic Jobs discovered the ArchiCAD software in 1984 and supported the company through financial and computer support.
