Feudal Game of Thrones

January 21, 2014

Redditor Seiji posted these amazing works of art featuring memorable moments from Game of Thrones in the style of feudal Japan. Click here to see the rest, but be aware of the Song of Ice and Fire spoiler warning!

Mother of Dragons – Danaerys wears traditional Heian-period royal clothing and is seated on the Mongolian Steppes, a fitting analogy for the Dothraki Sea, far from Westeros.

Battle of the Trident – This is the iconic duel between Robert Baratheon and Rhaegar Targaryen that preceded the series by seventeen years. Instead of a war hammer, Robert wields a Kanabō, a club-like samurai bludgeoning weapon. His antlered helmet is inspired by the famous helmet of the warlord Honda Tadakatsu.

Bran Stark and Hodor journey north – Weirwood lore shares some interesting similarities to Shinto practices, so I drew a shimenawa (prayer rope) around the tree trunk.
