Insanely Badass Iron Throne Art from GAME OF THRONES

George RR Martin says that this depiction of The Iron Throne best fits what he envisioned while writing the A Song of Fire and Ice series. As you can see, it's epically more badass and terrifying than the throne design used in HBO's Game of Thrones. In fact, this fan art puts that one to shame. I would love to see this throne brought to life! Martin explains:

This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It's a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes... a symbol of conquest... it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few. This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat, just as Aegon intended.

The art was created by Marc Simonetti, and he should be hired to do concept art for the series! Thank to Geekologie for the heads up on this!
