Fine Art: What The Iron Throne Should Really Look Like

What The Iron Throne Should Really Look Like

The one in the show is cool, don't get me wrong, but in the books, it's described as being made of one thousands blades. HBO's version is nowhere near it. This article was originally published 5 September 2013

This one, though, is closer to the real thing. So much so that series creator George R.R. Martin has given the image his blessing.

It was done by Marc Simonetti, a veteran concept artist with over 10 years experience who has worked in print, film, advertising and video games.

In that time, he's done stuff for clients like Activision, EA, Ubisoft, Dark Horse, Wizards of the Coast, Sony and Fantasy Flight Games.

You can see more of his work at his personal site.


Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios.

    Looks like an OH&S nightmare.

      In the book, everyone who sits on the throne gets cuts everytime they do it. ON the hands, the elbows, the thighs, etc. Surprised they didn't at least mold a bucket seat into the damn thing!

        Not everyone, just those the throne didn't believe belonged on it.

          Granted the only ones who have said they got cut on the thrones are the current crop of characters, none of which belonged there. Though I'm pretty sure Ned got cut too when he's listening to petitioners in Robert's absence.

    "Hold that thought SpogeBob, because it's time for a hometown favourite:

    Find the hay in the needlestack!"

    That spider image. Oh god I would love to see that in a movie, that is such a cool looking scene. I can just picture it, a boat going through a misty waterway, massive branch-like looking things extending out from the wall that you don't think twice about. Then all of a sudden you think, did that just move, before it slowly pans out to show a ridiculously massive spider slowing climbing down to f**k s**t up.

    *enrolls in a movie making course.
