To mark the first anniversary of Steve Jobs' death, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong unveiled a new wax figure of inventor and technology pioneer, Steve Jobs, on September 27, 2012.
The co-founder of Apple Inc and brain behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad is portrayed in his trademark relaxed style, wearing a black cotton turtle neck and Levi 501 jeans.
The pose, inspired by photographs taken at the shoot for his Fortune Magazine front cover in 2006, shows Jobs with arms casually folded in front of him, head tilted slightly with a warm smile.
The team of Madame Tussauds had also replicated a pair of Lunor spectacles which is previously custom made for Jobs.
The man who shaped contemporary consumer technology died on October 5, 2011. On Friday, October 5, 2012, is Steve Jobs' first death anniversary.
Soon after Jobs's death on October 5, 2011, a bronze statue of Steve Jobs was unveiled in a private business park in Budapest, Hungary December 21, 2011.
After Jobs' death, Biographer Walter Isaacson, wrote the biography of Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs told Walter Isaacson he wanted him to write his biography because he's good at getting people to talk.
The statue unveiled on Sep 27 cost HK$1,500,000 to create and a dedicated team of sculptors and hair and colour artists worked for three months to achieve an amazingly accurate likeness.
The figure will remain at the Historical and National Heroes attraction of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong during 27 September to 26 November 2012, before travelling on to Madame Tussauds Bangkok and then Madame Tussauds Shanghai
