Forging the Iron Throne by LindseyBurcar Forging the Iron Throne by LindseyBurcar

New rendition of my take on Balerion the Black Dread, using his flame to melt the swords surrendered by the enemies of his rider Aegon the Conqueror. Aegon conquered Westeros and united of the seven kingdoms under his rule. Standing nearby, he and his master blacksmiths look on. The hammering would take fifty-nine days to shape the mass of a thousand swords into that of the twisted chair; the seat of which all future kings would rule. It is said that the flames of Balerion were black in color, but I always thought it better that it was the dark suffocating smoke which spewed from his mouth in such volume which gave it that appearance.

It is the perfect size for a 1080x3840 dual monitor setup desktop background.




Other GoT work:   

"Have you ever seen the Iron Throne? The barbs along the back, the ribbons of twisted steel, the jagged ends of swords and knives all tangled up and melted? It is not a comfortable seat, ser. Aerys cut himself so often men took to calling him King Scab, and Maegor the Cruel was murdered in that chair. By that chair, to hear some tell it. It is not a seat where a man can rest at ease. Ofttimes I wonder why my brothers wanted it so desperately.
" – Stannis Baratheon to Davos Seaworth
