After a few months of Steve Jobs' passing, there are still many tributes unveiled like the one by 'Graphisoft.' Created by sculptor Erno Toth, this bronze statue is meant to honor the life and work of the technological genius. This real-size sculpture carries an iPhone in its right hand and has an iPad at its feet with a legend that reads, "The only way to do great work is to love what you do."

Graphisoft is a Hungarian software maker, and located the statue at its campus in Budapest. The piece is also an homage to the relationship between Apple and Graphisoft, as Apple supported one of the company's project in 1984. Gabor Bojar, the founder of Graphisoft, explains to Reuters, "We have felt his spirit every day and now it is embodied." Stats for CEO Tribute Statues Trending: Older & Chilly
