Feast your eyes on how Apple hopes you remember its visionary founder, Steve Jobs.

That thing is a scale- model of the winning design, which was selected from among 10,000 entries. Were they all this ugly?

It’s memorable, for whatever that’s worth. It’s also nothing like anything Jobs would have probably approved. He was all about clean design that made intuitive sense. That statue has Cyrillic letters sticking out of the side, because the designer is Serbian. Also, it has a tiny, pitted pinhead. It is basically a disturbing Pez dispenser, but without candy. The full-size 10 to 15 foot version will be built and stand outside Apple HQ in Cupertino, CA, where it will frighten children and impressionable adults for generations to come.

Like so many pieces of modern sculpture, it will get an unveiling ceremony, then will quickly fall into oblivion, ignored when it's not actively ridiculed.

Let's see. Steve has his head turned to the right. On his chest are short little T-Rex arms. He has a 0 for a butt and a 1 for a penis. Oddly it also seems he has a knife in his back.

Might as well put it a giant bottle of urine and call it 'Piss Jobs'.

If that was the winner of the contest, I would not want to see the one's that didn't make it. Just...hideous.

The statue will not be unveiled.
It will be unleashed.

A whole lot of modern art makes no sense at all. I remember reading about an art competition in England that was won by a guy who simply turned the light switch on and off. That was apparently deemed art of the highest order and worthy of something like 20,000 British pounds.

How utterly grotesque. And the linked article states "When completed, the statue will stand between 10 and 16 feet tall." What a frightening monstrosity that will be...

If that was the "best" one out of 10,000 entries, the other 9,999 must've been paper bags with turds in them.

It should be a nine foot head only, with a single square button on the forehead.
