A bust of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been unveiled on his birthday.

A scaled down model of the statue was revealed in Belgrade on Monday and will be sent to California for final inspection before sculptor Dragon Radenovic crafts the final version at Apple’s Cupertino HQ.

The statue was selected in a contest with over 10,000 entries and incorporates a bust of Jobs mounted on pillar featuring Cyrillic letters and the numbers 0 and 1 – representing the binary numeral system.

The final statue will be between three and five meters tall and will be installed in an unknown location at Apple’s HQ.

This isn’t the first statue of Steve Jobs. Just two and half months after his death in 2011, a 6 ½ feet tall bronze statue was unveiled in a tech park in Budapest.

Last week, a US government document was leaked, revealing that Jobs will appear on a range of collectible postal stamps throughout 2015.

Jobs was born on February 24th, 1955. After a long battle with cancer he passed away in October 2011.
