Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been immortalized — in chalk.

A portrait of Rodgers won the  2016 sidewalk Chalkfest competition in Wausau.

Elizabeth Myshka beat out 800 other artists in the competition, but for her, choosing her subject matter was easy. 

“I knew everyone would be familiar with him since we live in Wisconsin, everyone’s pretty much a Packer fan, and I don’t think anyone’s ever done him before,” Myshka said.

The winning entry was voted on by the artists themselves.

Here’s hoping the rain holds out for a few more days in order to keep Rodgers intact.
