Vanessa Bryant shares stunning Illustration of Gianna

The wife Kobe Bryant, Vanessa shared a stunning artwork of her late daughter, Gianna, wearing her dad’s jersey. Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram to share a gorgeous artwork created by Japan-based designer and illustrator, Reina Koyano, that featured her late daughter, Gianna, wearing her father Kobe Bryant’s jersey and holding a basketball.

“Seeing my babygirl smile and happy again with a basketball under her arm, wrapped in (Laker colors) love just warmed my heart,” Vanessa captioned the picture, expressing her gratitude for the thoughtful work of art. “Thank you for this. @_vivalareina thank you!! My Gigi. #Mambacita.”

Kobe and 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, along with seven others aboard died after the Lakers player’s private helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California on January 26, 2020.

There have been a number of tributes paying respect to the lives lost, and Vanessa has shared several images and messages via social media in the wake of the tragedy.

Here is another comment of hers and group of family picture:

“My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time,” Vanessa wrote alongside the family portrait of herself, Kobe, and their four girls. “Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever.”

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to MambaOnThree.org.

Thank you so much for lifting us up in your prayers, and for loving Kobe, Gigi, Natalia, Bianka, Capri and me. #Mamba #Mambacita #GirlsDad #DaddysGirls #Family ❤️
