Here Is a Strangely Beautiful, Autumnal Steve Jobs Tribute

By
Montreal-based artist Olivier Lefebvre has created this unique tribute to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs - made entirely from apples. Lefebvre, 34, used 3,500 green and red apples to create the mosaic over the course of four days at the Pavillon de la Pomme orchard in Mont St. Hilaire earlier this month. He said it took about 40 hours in total to create the work."I went online and found a picture (of Jobs) that spoke to me," he said. He then worked to copy the photo by laying the apples in a grid system. He told a newspaper about half of the apples were ones that had already fallen on the orchard floor, and that he bought the rest from the orchard. "People are freaking about how many apples I put on the land," Lefebvre told the Montreal Gazette. "I didn't use any apples consumed by human beings." Jobs died on October 5, aged 56.
