A memorial to the late co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, will be unveiled in the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa, city hall said on its web site on Thursday.

A memorial to the late co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, will be unveiled in the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa, city hall said on its web site on Thursday.

 

The two-meter, hand-shaped steel memorial has a hole in the center in the shape of the Apple's trademark logo. The 200-kg sculpture will be installed near the student hostel and lit up in the evenings, the city’s authorities said.

“I’ve watched all the videos with Steve and noted that he often gesticulated. He communicated with people with these gestures,” Kirill Maksimenko, an Odessa sculptor who made Jobs’s "Palm" of spare car parts and scrap metal, told the local news web site Dumskaya.net.

Among Maksimenko’s previous works are insects made of metal and the Iron Cheburashka, an installation featuring a popular Soviet animated cartoon character.

 

Meanwhile, the IT Progress Fund in Russia launched on Tuesday a contest for the best idea for a Jobs memorial in St. Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, the organization said in a statement.

 

“This can be any idea – a classical monument, steel, memorial plaque or even some kind of modern electronic installation,” the organizers said.

 

The deadline for applications is August 6.

 

Soon after Jobs’s death on October 5, 2011, a bronze monument to him was unveiled in Budapest, Hungary, while the tiny Brazilian town of Jundiai near Sao Paulo named a street after him.
