A 1964 Notre Dame graduate, Jerry McKenna, sculpted a statue in Voss, Norway to honor his legacy. There was a ceremony held before the unveiling on March 31, 2006. McKenna sculpted Rockne out of molten bronze. In order to honor Rockne, the molten bronze had three elements that gave it more meaning. He used steel parts from a carriage that Rockne's father made in 1888, a gold leaf from the golden dome at Notre Dame, and debris from the plane crash that killed Rockne. These elements all represent stages of his life.
