Two years have passed since the tragic news that nine people including Kobe and Gianna Bryant were killed in a helicopter crash. A sculptor in Los Angeles placed a statue on the crash site in Calabasas, California on the two-year anniversary of the tragic events.

Artist Dan Medina said to NBC Los Angeles that he brought the 160-pound bronze statue with him on a 4 a.m. hike to the crash site in the hills above Calabasas.

The artwork depicts the Lakers’ legend with his arm around his daughter as she holds a ball. Both are wearing basketball uniforms. Medina added the names of the nine victims to the base of the statue.

They are Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton; John Altobelli, wife Keri and daughter Alyssa; and the pilot, Ara Zobayan.
