Actually I would like to know more about the story but I like seeing the other levels also. Remember it still could be 7 more months before the game comes out... this update is pretty early.

like trinity said, the game is coming out early 2006! so we're lucky to have an update! and everything that Eidos said about the update is there ; screens, concept arts, fan arts section and Q&A with Toby Guard... and if you look at the screens shots section, it's written coming soon... So maybe we might have an other one later... :o

but I agree with that: they should have give us a little more info!

I can't see any of the above mentioned updates, apart from the 6 pieces of concept artwork I've already posted, so I assume my useless ISP NTL is being lazy and hasn't purged its web-cache.

A member of our forums has managed to capture these, in case anyone else is having problems viewing the updates.

MissLara2U's comment was made because of problems viewing all the updated material. He's retracted that statement in another post I believe.

Indeed. Having now viewed ALL updates, and having received spanking new media from Eidos, I'm more than happy. :)

The man encased in resin (?) is what is inbetween the legs of the statue.

Look familiar? :)

Description
Nearly three thousand years ago, this winged guardian stood at the gate of the palace of Ashurnasirpal II, the king of the Assyrian empire. Ashurnasirpal moved the capital of his vast empire from Assur to Nimrud, in what is now Iraq. He built his magnificent palace in the heart of the new city. Ashurnasirpal was so pleased with the palace that when it was finished, he celebrated by giving a party for sixty-five thousand guests.
The guests entering the palace would have passed between a pair of these human-headed winged lions. Notice that the lion-creature has five legs. Viewed from the side, it seems to be striding forward on four legs. From the front, it stands quietly and firmly, with only two legs showing. The horned cap it wears is a sign of the creature's divinity, and the belt around its body is a sign of power. The figure is carved in alabaster (gypsum), in high relief. Lining the walls inside the palace were alabaster panels carved with images of winged divinities with human and bird heads, and of the king himself with his attendants.

Thanks to Leonard at tombraiderforums.com for the discovery

But do you want to know something interesting? the Egyptians did the same thing..

http://www.metmuseum.org/Works_of_Art/director/images/eg17.9.2.R.jpg


Description
Although the standing sphinx represented a conqueror for the ancient Egyptians, the crouching sphinx was a guardian of sacred places. During the period this sphinx was made, the king was seen as morally responsible for the protection of Egypt. So it is fitting that Senwosret III, a great ruler and soldier, should be portrayed as a magnificent crouching sphinx.
This work was carved from a single block of beautifully grained gneiss from the quarries of Nubia. We do not know the name of the sculptor, but it is a mark of his greatness that he was able to infuse a block of stone with such life. The majestic strength of the lion's body contrasts with the furrowed brow and grimly set mouth of the king's face. Senwosret the man is represented with consummate skill. The cares of a long and difficult life are visible on his proud but deeply lined face. We can see from his expression that this was a king who took to heart his responsibilities as guardian.

Ann. I'm glad you found our forum helpful. But please be courteous and thank Lleonard Pler (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=21;t=001802;p=5) for his discovery.

I just did, sorry it wasn't fast enough for you. Justin you must know that I don't try to steal anything... I always give the source to every article I post, don't I? Yes Lleonard came up with the idea but if you are so set on credit, where is his link to his source? I don't see that anywhere, whereas I did put a link to the museum, yet you jump on my case about credit?
