Statue decipting Midas in Tomb Raider Anniversary

Midas is a character from ancient Greek Mythology mentioned in the original Tomb Raider and in its remake Tomb Raider Anniversary.

It is said that everything he touched turned into gold. He ruled in Pessinus, which today is located in Turkey, hence some believe that the second part of Tomb Raider actually took place in Turkey, not in Greece.

A Statue of Midas is seen in the levels Palace Midas (Tomb Raider) and Greece - Midas's Palace (Tomb Raider Anniversary).

In the original Tomb Raider, it is only the feet seen of and a platform with the name MIDAS. On the right you see the hand of Midas. If you stand on the hand, you will turn into gold and the game is over.

In Tomb Raider Anniversary, the statue is somewhat complete, only the hand of Midas has fallen off from it.

Use the hand of Midas to turn the Bars into Gold Bars.
