The artistry of Game of Thrones is second-to-none, with production beginning months before actors even step foot on set. These new behind-the-scenes photos from season 4 give us a look at the creation of some famous set pieces featured this year on Game of Thrones, from the Wall in the far North, to Joffrey’s wedding, and to across the sea in Braavos.
This lion was featured at the Purple Wedding, with dwarves galloping out of the final, painted version.
The unique logo of the Iron Bank of Braavos looms large in this photo highlighting the incredibly detailed work on a door, from Stannis and Davos’ visit.
Sue the Fury: Even having seen the final product, I’m still amazed. We tend to think a lot of this is all special effects, but these incredible sets are made and sculpted every year. I’m looking forward to seeing what season five brings.
