Ohhh, look how small and cute they are! I imagine them being Drogon and Vyserion when they were baby dragons. unfortunately Rhaegal is missing. Let`s just say he`s done drinking and now he left for some hunting. Masterpieces anyway.
In the very moment I saw this painting I could`t think of anything else except the scene when Ned Stark finds Lyanna in the Tower of joy and she dies wispering hauntingly : „Promise me, Ned!” All the details are perfect for that: she is lying on a bed looking like she`s in agnony, her hair is wild and brown like Lyanna`s hair was, her favourite color, blue, is everywhere and also her flower, the roses. The only one who isn`t like we imagine is Ned (the prince) who surely wasn`t dress like that, but never mind, it really doesn`t spoil the rest.
I`ve recently become a member on deviantart.com and I`m certainly not sorry about it. I`ve discover on this website a lot of amazing things like this magnificent medieval city which in the very moment I saw hit me like a bolt between my eyes and I said: OMG, but this couldn`t be anything else except the esoteric, weird, mysterious, dark and far away city of Asshai. Completely built of black stone, with almost no light, extremely huge and set on a river, with scary mists and, exactly like Asshai should be, placed near a great, dangerous, impenetrable and full of snow chain of mountains. It`s absolutely incredible how well-suited this is!
Really???!!! I mean really?! This portrait was made in Spain some centuries back and still the physical resemblance is astonishing. How could it be? Not only the face but his seize? It`s like a sort of miracle. I mean just compare them. It`s the same look, the same face shape, the same eyebrows, the same lips the same expression, almost the same everything.
Were the Stark direwolf and the Lannister lion inspired by the badges for two parties in the French War of the Roses? This manuscript page seems like more than just a coincidence. Anyway I had a huge shock when I found this on the internet. It`s the same old story : the lion fighting with the wolf, the wolf ending seriously injured by the lion or as some might think even killed (but we can`t say this for sure yet), and above them the crown which could symbolize the king who made them fight or the crown they both want to get.
Do you remember Ros character? I do and I`m sorry she died so quickly and in such a horrible way. I would love that she would baffle Littlefinger`s plans, that would have been really something. But, anyway, I found that portrait by William Clarke Wonter very alike her, don`t you think? Red hair and almost the same features plus the perfect attitude and the perfect clothes-not to expensive and very provoking. And the background is also proper for the atmosphere in King`s landing.
This is how I picture Shae looked like, accordingly with the description in the books-short and very pretty, with large dark eyes and short black hair. Which is exactly how the girl in this portrait looks like. And of course she was simple dressed, in voile and transparent materials. Here is another of her „representations” also by John William Godward (one of my favourites painters BTW), this one with the hair in a bun and probably in the Red Keep`s garden. Remarkable sameness with the character.
I loved the legend of Lightbringer. So sad and full of meanings about the power of sacrifice and true love…I found this painting to represent the very spirit of this story. There a shinning sword, like a flame or a sun ray, bought by a beautiful, noble woman, who it would be Azor Ahai`s wife, Nissa Nissa.
