I think we’ve seen our fair share of bizarre Steve Jobs action figures over the months since the CEO of Apple passed away. Jobs was recently cast as a wax figure as well. The new sculpture has surfaced created by an artist going by the name XVALA that started life as a discarded MIC Gadget Steve Jobs action figure. Those action figures were killed by that Apple legal team.
The artist takes the action figure and coats it in a patented plastic porcelain mixture. Some of the plastic in the special porcelain mixture is made from recycled resin created using Steve Jobs’ residential trash. The artist claims that he collected the trash from Steve Jobs’ home a few months before he passed away.
There are white versions of the sculpture and a black version of the sculpture with a white designed for mass production. The black version is supposed to bring attention to the suicides at Foxconn factories. The owner of the gallery where the sculptures are being displayed says that they will move forward with or without Apple approval.Filed Under: Apple
