    Hello,

    Instead of my normal stick it on a stand on a shelf display option, i'm trying to come up with something a little different for my latest acquisition.

    My initial thought is some form of shadowbox with the Tomb Raider 2 DVD cover picture in the background, After all you cannot get enough of Angelina in that silver wetsuit.

    But wondered if you had any other ideas??

    What is this? How was it used in the movie?

    Hey Brad, It's the medallion from Tomb Raider 2, which Lara removes from the Alexander the Great Statue in the Luna Temple - It holds the key / clue of how to get the yellow orb to show its map for the location of the cradle of life.

    How about stringing a leather strap and then puting it on a display bust:

    More important is, is it a replica or a screenused item? And where dou you get it?!?

    Is it flat? Dimensions? I would suggest these clear ctand up displays, like Brade have for some pieces of his collection.

    Or try to frame it... In die Double DVd Feature there was nice autographed picture of angelina in her wetsuit... ;)

    Would look nice next to it...

    Or try to frame it next to the cover and 2/3 screenshots of the prop...

    Freshly delivered from the Propstore of London, but sadly no it is not screen used - It is a cast and crew gift - Although quite a rarity as i've never seen another - From what i can gather it is the same as the screen used - Possibly, and i do stress possibly came from the same molds, this i am checking out just now - Dimensions appear to be the same, it fits in the palm of your hand.

    Ah, cool. Never noticed it in the movie, maybe it's just too long since I saw the movie...

    Well, Im a friend of "minimum 2 pieces" displays, so I would think about if you like to have it next to other TR Props, left and right and in the middle a frame with that item... But it depends on, what you like... It looks like an mazing piece, Im sure you will present it the right way... ;)

    C'mon, let's be honest here. If you had a chest sculpt of Angelina, it would get played with more than your props. :lol

    Yeah, I think the bust/chest is more expensive than other characters because of more material... :)

    would be inetersting if the chest or the face needs more material... And yes, I say face, not lips, before we have typical, stupid men-jokes... :lol

    Maybe putting fishing line on each hole and making some
    Sort of frame to attach the ends of the line to, so it is centered
    As if it were floating in the middle. Its easier for me to vision it than explain it,
    It looks cool, ive been a tomb raider fan since I played the first game
    Good luck

    If it was taken from a corpse in the movie, it should be displayed on a corpse bust.

    This one might work

    There are many similar if you Google necklace display bust.

    Looking through my picture archives it was worn with a leather(?) cord through the top hole.

    Apologies to division 6

    I needed to know the info because there is a medallion on ebay. But it is not a good copy anyway.

    G17RDY I hope you find a worthy display style and treasure it! :thumbsup
