Was looking at the new images and realized a couple of the engineers on the planet were smaller and had more delicate features than the others. Could they be females?

Sadly nothing is mentioned as far as the whole Fresco... but to me it looks more like the Prometheus Punishment..

Which may had led to the creation of a Creature that then gave them a perverted way of being able to Bare a Child... so they Worshiped this... and Reverse Engineered and Experimented upon it.. until they achieved the Deacon in the Mural.

As far as PARADISE...

I think the best connection is to look at it directly as far as how Paradise is within the Bible and Paradise Lost.

*PARADISE is not where GOD came from.

*PARADISE is not where the Angels came from.

*PARADISE is the Cradle of Humanoid Civilization (Mankind)

*PARADISE is Guarded by and Watched over by Cherubim Angels.

The LV-223 Engineers could have been a Faction of these Guardians/Watchers who had upset the Hierarchy and was banished from Paradise with the Humans they had corrupted.. or they was banished for trying to do this and then they decided to create Humanoids themselves.

Or maybe these beings on Paradise are Engineers who  perform a Sacrificial Role that some Rebelled against and got banished.

We need to look at what Alien Covenant showed...

*Humanoids who all dwell within one City, that means they are easier to watch over and keep in check.  The Garden of Eden was just Once Place on Paradise where Mankind had to remain.

*They lacked much Technology apart from the Scorpion Docking Ship, that maybe the Watchers, watched over from.

*The Hanger had a Statues like the Buddha Offering ones, which maybe would hint these beings had some Sacrificial Role and they was used for this purpose (Sacrificial Scene).

*The Hall of Heads was referred to as being Superior Beings, the Apostles and Wise Men, and where the Race stores its Information/Archives... These Heads Look like the Elders.

Then we need to look at Prometheus..

*This place seems to have more Technology, and appears to be a Watch Place for over Earth where these Engineer Experiment on Life before seeding it to the Garden (Earth).

*The Juggernaughts Navigation System has links to many other Galaxies and the closest to ours is 2.5 Millions Light Years away... LV-223 being just over 39LY means these beings have/can travel and explore vastly more further than LV-223 and Paradise/Planet 4

So for a Race as Ancient, at least Hundreds of Millions of years old if not over a Billion, who can travel to various Galaxies.. means that the distance from Earth to LV-223 and Paradise is but a drop in the Ocean...

Then why would such a Advance Race, be Set up on Paradise in One City with a Lack Of Technology?

The Answer.... Logically means this Place is just a Place they used a base to seed and create Humanoids within this Galaxy or section of our Galaxy and the Elders and Engineers do not come from here... but the LV-223 Engineers did.. as they was the Watchers/Cherubim who Rebelled and got kicked out of Paradise.

Anybody have the HD picture of all the engineers w/o the red circle?

HD shots. (Right click, open in new tab/window for full size)

Just tacking this on here, but did Ridley actually say they LOST the ability to procreate, or did he do one of those "The way I see it is that they lost the ability to procreate...or maybe they evolved beyond the need to procreate."  You know how he kind of ponders on these things as he explains them, using a lot of "I think..." and "Maybe they..."  But I thought there was a quote of him saying they evolved beyond the need to procreate sexually, and have moved up to seed entire planets.  This would make sense anyways, since sex and natural child birth can be pretty dangerous (STDs and all the life threatening things that come with birthing a child naturally).

Idk if you're reading this, BoZ, probably not, but I remember you telling us you had a video, idk if you still have it, I'd like to see it.

Indeed this was the Original idea, going back to Spaights ideas, which was the Engineers had evolved themselves to a point they lost the ability to procreate and had to come up with other means to do so.

Ridley Scott however suggested after Prometheus came out that the Engineers COULD create life in other ways (this could mean Procreate, or even Clone) but the Sacrificial Route was just the way they went about it, its how their culture had CHOSEN to do it.

And so looking at the Prometheus Engineers at that time, we had these beings that have either Evolved themselves past Procreation, or that these beings were kind of Evolved/Cloned this way so they can not Procreate.

Alien Covenant kind of muddies the water a bit as we see these beings are more Human looking, RS also confirming a few things.

*These are the ORIGINAL Engineers (does this mean LV-223 ones are not?)

*These beings (Engineers on Planet 4) also live for about 150 years.

While also saying the Hall of Heads are the Wise Men, Apostles, Hierarchy and Superior Beings... Superior to WHOM? Those Engineers on Planet 4 or Mankind?

I think this is worth a Bump.... i was going to start a Thread, but then its taking up Space on the Site, and who needs Up-votes ;)

Indeed it is interesting that we see Female Engineers, the Fact with closer inspection of Davids Workship drawings with translations of the hand writing we see that not only are there Female Engineers, but there are Infants which means they could Procreate.

This does bring the Question of why the Sacrificial Scene, or did this merely lead to those Engineers?

Adding Females and Procreation does change the Direction set by Jon Spaights in which the Engineers had Evolved themselves past Procreation and had to find other means to create Life.

While on the Subject of Female Engineers,  and maybe Females in General, i was going to make a New Topic to discus these Concept Works, by Wayne Haagg and Steve Messing, both of the Cathedral Dome Doors, which both feature depictions of Humanoids who are not like the Engineers, but one is very Sumerian Style and the Other Biblical/Greek.   The Biggest Thing of Importance appears to be FEMALES on the Doors.

What i would give to pick their brains for the reasons behind those similar designs on the Doors/Entrance, and why the Females?  Surely not Coincidence both designed the Cathedral and placed None Engineer looking Humanoids, or the relevance of Females?
