Wall of Thrones

Painted wooden wall hangings inspired from ‘Game of Thrones’


Obsession – that’s one word that the Game of Thrones series have created. And we’re yet another victims of it. From the conspiracies to the drama, the blood-shed to the passion – it’s all so bloody damn invigorating.

This obsession became our new inspiration – to translate the Gamer of Thrones euphoria into a creative home d├ęcor art piece. And we thought that a creative representation of the 7 kingdom sigils overlaid on the map of Westeros & Essos would combine all the essence of our inspiration.

Raw wood – that became our base. We got the wood bark cut into fattish circular discs. No treatment, no polishing required – just kept it raw.

We painted the following sigils of the famous houses on these wooden discs:
1.       The Direwolf of House Stark
2.       The Crowned Stage of House Baratheon
3.       The Golden Lion of House Lannister
4.       The Rose of House Tyrell
5.       The Kraken of House Greyjoy
6.       The 3-Headed Dragon of House Targaryen
7.       The Moon & Falcon of House Arryn

Lastly, we screwed in hook-clips on the back-side of the wooden-sigils. With hooks on we can hang them in the fashion we desire. We made an outline of the ‘the known world’, and hanged the wooden-sigils at the houses’ respective locations on the map.

Our fantasy inspired, wall-art is ready to be displayed and the castles ready to destroy each other, because, “When you play a game of thrones you win or you die.” 

Hangable wall-art is a great way to showcase our inspirations and creativity. Chose a plain wall in your room and put and change interesting art-pieces. So every time guests come in, you have something new to flaunt.
