Kobe Bryant is a legend in the world of the NBA. Fans mourn the tragic demise of the basketball player and his daughter, Gigi Bryant. The statues of the father and daughter were displayed at the crash site earlier this year. Now, the sculptor of those works of art is giving away four replicas on Mamba Day.
TMZ Sports reports that Dan Medina is giving away miniature versions of the original statues to honor Mamba Day. Medina initially made a 160-pound bronze statue. He brought them to the crash site in Calabasas on January 26th.
Medina’s statues were temporary because, according to the outlet, the city of Calabasas isn’t installing permanent ones just yet. The sculptor provided more details about the miniature versions.
I will be giving away 4 Bronze sculptures in the near future. The designs are 12 inches tall and are an exact replica of the larger design I displayed last January 26. I’m genuinely humbled by my opportunity in keeping their legacy alive. The world needs this.
The sculptor revealed the instructions for participation on Instagram. For eligibility, the fans have to make a donation to Mamba and Mambacita Foundation for as little as $24. Participants will enter a certain email, and Medina will announce the four winners one by one.
The first winner will be announced on September 26, leading up to the final winner around January 2023, when it’ll mark three years to the death of Kobe & Gigi Bryant.
