The halo. Gianna throwing her arms around Kobe's neck. It's breathtakingly sad.
Many fans have been stopping by to get a picture of this beautiful mural, still in progress, painted on the side of Kountry Kloudz Smoke Shop in Nashville.
The artist, Jose Fernando Vargas, wanted to honor the lives of all that were tragically lost in the helicopter crash that claimed Kobe and Gianna Bryant's lives as well.
Next to the image is a quote,"The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do."
Jose has definitely taken those words to heart. I can't tell you if he's an artist by trade, but he's using his talent to inspire others - in the name of a legend whose life was taken too soon.
Kountry Kloudz Smoke Shop is located at 3807 Nolensville Pike, Nashville, TN 37211
