POW! Did you just feel that?! You just got hit with Knuckle Number 1—four more to go! I hope you like five black eyes…or something…point being, Team Five Knuckle Sandwich is on the board—all other teams may begin weeping.

----

Anywho, it’s time to delve into the wonderful world of Westeros! These two themed bookends are based off the novels and television show of the series A Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin; otherwise more popularly known as Game of Thrones.



Each side of the bookends features an iconic location from the series; the first being the white tree from Winterfell known as a Weirwood, and the second being the infamously pointy Iron Throne of King’s Landing.

Together they form bookends that struggle to hold up my infinitely-heavy but growing collection of Game of Thrones books. (There are more books in the series, although currently my collection only incudes the first three)





Got a nice Game of Thrones shelf going on here! And no, I don't also own the season 3 DVD/Blu-ray set yet...unfortunately.



Weirwood

The first side is the Weirwood; a religious tree of Westeros that has a face carved in its trunk; this specific one is modeled after the Weirwood seen in godswood of Winterfell. Placed on this tree is the three-eyed Raven—a figure that appears in the dreams and visions of the lamed character Bran Stark.





The Weirwood tree is notable for its stark white bark, as well as its blood red leaves. They are symbols of the Old Gods of Westeros, and few remain standing after the Andal Invasion 6,000 years before the main story begins. The Weirwood is a notable landmark of Winterfell, the strongest castle of the North; the seat of House Stark.



Iron Throne

Seat of the King of the Andals and the First Men, forged from 1000 swords and Dragonfire. Placed in the center of the Red Keep of King’s Landing, the Iron Throne is the seat upon which a king may rule all of Westeros.



Styled after its iconic appearance in the HBO series, this Iron Throne may be a bit sort in the sword department. Nonetheless, the depiction of this monstrosity was successful, as it’s extremely dangerous to pick up, unless you want to get poked.





Enjoy!

Both are very good, I know how difficult is to match the swords, but... Check my Iron Throne I think is worth it. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/405322

Nice job with this! The complexity and technique of the throne is what won me over. My only nitpick is the border, however. In my opinion, Black and gray do not correspond together very well in a border. Hence, that might be something you want to take note of in the future. Score: 4

Nailed 'em both! Even got the three-eyed raven too. Great choices for imagery from the story. Although, you could have chosen Tyrion urinating off the wall. Ahhh, maybe not. ;) Well done!

Recognize the throne, but nothing else. :P George RR Martin sounds suspiciously like JRR Tolkien...Anyhoo, nice job with these, look really great!

That's fantastic. I love how you got the feel of the throne even with it being, as you said, short of swords. The pairing is appealing visually and in the context of the story.
