The international community, it seems, is still publicly grieving the loss of Apple founder Steve Jobs. In fact, the St. Petersburg National Research University in Russia unveiled a statue of a huge iPhone today to commemorate Mr. Jobs’ death, because it’s Russia, you guys.

The super tall iPhone replica features a screen that displays a photo and video tribute to Mr. Jobs’ life. There’s also a QR code appended to the back that visitors can scan to learn more about the Apple founder.

Sadly, the monument does not come equipped with a vodka dispenser to help drown your sorrows.
