Tomb Raider (2013) “Taking Aim” Giclee

Created especially for Treehouse Brands official Tomb Raider store by Laura Bifano, this giclee was first available for purchase in March 2013 for the price of $40.00. It was limited to just 60 copies worldwide. Made on 100% cotton rag archival paper and printed with archival inks on a 18" x 24" canvas.

There is only one listing on eBay, located in the UK with worldwide shipping for the price of £60. The same seller is also selling other Tomb Raider giclees. With this particular listing, the item is listed as one of 30 copies but the seller has added that this was dependant on where the item was signed as 30 were signed in New York and marked with NY and 30 were signed in San Francisco and marked with SF. We do not know if this is true however as the official store did not mention this.
