Kobe Bryant mural cut into grass at California park

Kobe Bryant fans continue to create new ways to honor the late NBA star. 

A California couple, using the technology from their company, cut a 10,000-square foot mural into the grass at a park in Pleasanton, California, that can only be seen from above.

Kelli Pearson created the design by using several pictures of Bryant, and her husband, Pete Davis, loaded the image into a specialized lawn mower as he made it come to life. 

The result is a 115-foot tall and 92-foot wide image of Bryant in his Los Angeles Lakers jersey holding a basketball. The couple's company, New Ground Technology, shared a video of the project Wednesday on its YouTube channel.

"This tragedy came as a huge surprise. He was an amazing person, amazing family man and an amazing athlete," Pearson told CNN. "Fortunately, we have this technology that allows us to do this huge tribute."

The grass is blown in one direction or another to create the light and dark contrast, so fans will only be able to enjoy the image of Bryant for a couple days until the grass returns to normal.
