The Iron throne by MarcSimonetti The Iron throne by MarcSimonetti
This is the Work in Progress picture of the "Iron throne" made for the upcoming concordance "The World of Ice and Fire" by Grr Martin, for Random House.
All I can say is that the book will be awesome.

PS: Please note that it isn't the final one, and that I can't sell prints of it.

PS: Thanks so much for the DD!

The Iron throne by *MarcSimonetti

"A dozen different artists have done versions of the Iron Throne over the years. Some have been very striking, some less so, but none of them have ever been quite RIGHT," says Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin himself.

do you remember the part where little finger comments on how the throne is not made out of a thousand blades, just barely 200. your version of the iron throne is probably what such a mighty chair would look like if there were a thousand blades in that throne. good job.

That's in the show, since they had to scale it down for filming/production purposes. In the books, it is a thousand, possibly more, and George R. R. Martin himself has said that this this one is the one that he'd pictured when he writes about it.

THIS is the Iron Throne. A monstrosity, a thousand swords of slaughtered men welded into a chair for the king of dragons.

This is amazing! It is so much bigger than I imagined, even after reading the books (which I read before I watched the show). 

There is a post about this on tor.com which linked to GRRM's blog in which he says that this is the closest ANYONE has ever come to depicting the Iron Throne that he sees in his mind when he is writing his books. 

So, congratulations! I can't wait to see the final version in the concordance.
