** Update ** To celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the release of Tomb Raider (2013), Jean Michel Thery is putting his “Well of Tears” model up for sale. The complete model (including the Lara figurine) is being sold for 250 euros, though you can buy the model sans figurine for 200 euros.
Please note that since Jean Michel lives in Belgium, there may be some issues regarding the sale and delivery of the model to buyers outside mainland Europe. I am unable to answer any questions regarding the sale and delivery conditions of this model so please direct all your queries to Jean Michel. You can contact him via his email address: jmtherybl_at_hotmail.com.
Regular visitors to this blog or its Facebook page will probably be familiar with Jean Michel Thery’s stunning Tomb Raider models, such as this Egyptian tomb model inspired by Last Revelation or this model of an Angkorian temple.
For this beautiful work of art, Jean Michel drew inspiration from Tomb Raider 2013 and created a model based on the “Well of Tears”, one of the tombs hidden away in the island’s shantytown.
If you look at the fine attention to detail on each of the relics in the tomb, you can only imagine how much time and painstaking effort went into this prize-winning model, which he originally created for Croft Collection’s 2013 photo competition. It’s thought he spent some 200 hours working on it, sculpting, painting and embellishing the statues and other artefacts within the tomb.
You can find more photos of the model, both completed and as a work in progress, over on the Croft Collection blog. And if you’d like to see video close-ups of his other Tomb Raider models, check out Jean Michel’s Youtube channel.
