"There is an agreed process to make this decision and it will ensure all views are heard and considered.
Readers can have their say on whether the tomb is fit for a king by taking part in a poll on the Mercury's website.
I like the general look of it, the side carvings are very appropriate. it looks solid, sturdy with clean lines. Maybe it could have a likeness cast in bronze incorporated into the top as if he's resting. after all they have reproduced a musculo facial likeness from skeletal remains, so maybe could do the same for his body? but i guess if it's to keep costs to a minimum then clean and simple is best?

Engravings around the sides of the society's vision for the tomb will incorporate Richard's personal and family emblems including the white rose of the House of York and the white boar.
long as he remains in Leicester that is all that counts, where he can keep watch from the centre of his Kingdom, and be equally accessible to everyone throughout the Kingdom. Well done ; )
A society spokesman said: "The magnesian limestone represents Richard's journey from darkness to light and also his important connections with Yorkshire and the city of York."

The re interment of the last Plantagenet king is expected to take place in spring next year.
I like it. It is clean and dignified. It is almost as if Richard has been resurrected and died again, and this time it is up to us, his descendants, to see that he has an honorable monument and burial in our time. I found an interesting article on the web titled "Creating and recreating the Yorkist tombs in Fotheringhay church (Northamptonshire)" from 2011. There are pictures of posthumous (1573) monuments to Richard, Duke of York and Edward, Duke of York, and others. I doubt there are the means, either monetary or in craftsmanship, to create something that elaborate. The design put forth by the Richard III Society is both beautiful and meaningful. I am happy to see that Richard's motto, Loyaulte me lie (Loyalty binds me) is prominent. We need to give our gratitude to all those involved in finding Richard and their preparations to honor him. I never thought I would see this in my lifetime.
It is a shame it has come to this. For almost 2 years the Cathedral at Leicester supported this design and its development. I wonder why the change of heart?.
However, before the latest project is undertaken, the society must get approval from a number of organisations, including the Cathedrals Fabrics Commission for England and Fabrics Advisory Committee.
The temptation is great in retrospect to say bury him with Anne as she was his wife, but, regardless of how much he may have loved her, he did need to remarry, so we cannot assume he intended to be buried with Anne, especially as there was no room in Westminster Abbey at that time, and her monument was set in the floor, rather than being an elevated tomb.
John Ashdown Hill's book The last Days of Richard III and the Fate of his DNA, p52, says it is probably not significant that Anne was buried at Westminster, as Richard was planning to marry again and beget an heir, and would likely then be buried with the mother of his surviving heir. (I have put this in my own words)
First image of tomb that could hold king at Leicester Cathedral
I have been looking for the ideas bit about where to place The King Richard lll statue, the staue placement within the City I shall not comment BUT Northumberland have the Angel of The Nike Metcon Floral North and there are many other sculptures for county areas around England. Has anyone thought of having of having a giant King Richard lll sculpture?
Richard Smith, chairman of the East Midlands branch of the society, said: "It's a fitting tribute to Richard and includes many of his emblems and symbols."
Richard Taylor, deputy registrar at the University of Leicester, said: "As licence holder we fully support the process set out by Leicester Cathedral for determining an appropriate resting place for King Richard III.
Masons would craft the casket from the same stone from which York Minster was built.
"We will take note of any proposals made by others, including those of the Richard III Society. The decision process will come to its own conclusions and, until then, no agreement has been made about any proposed tomb."
"The designs put forward by the Richard III Society are one interesting contribution to that process."
The stonework would also include the Cross of St Cuthbert, to highlight Richard's devotion to the Christian faith.
The cathedral yesterday announced it was starting preparations for the reburial.
This is Leicester have chosen to only display the images of the tomb design in isolation. Images were produced with the tomb set in the context of Leicester Cathedral.
The society has already raised of the needed for the tomb, if it is given the go ahead.
The sculpture could be an enlarged version of that leicester already has, I am sure there are businesses in Leicestershire who would associate themselves with such a venture as the subject was real and of historic importance.
We can only assume that This is Leicester have a vested interest in making this design unappealing to the general public so that they can support the Cathedral in whatever design they put forward.

The Richard III Society has already donated a number of tributes to Leicester, including a statue of Richard III, which stands in Castle Gardens, and a memorial stone at the cathedral.
