Fans of HBO’s fantasy hit Game of Thrones were in for a chilly treat at London’s Covent Garden today as they lined up for a chance to sit on the infamous Iron Throne.
The throne, made and sculpted completely from ice, didn’t seem to faze fans though as they gathered to behold and sit on the frozen masterpiece.
Created by Glacial Art Ice Sculptors, the life-sized sculpture was installed to celebrate the launch of Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season.
“The Glacial Art team are huge Game of Thrones fans and we were delighted to be approached by HBO to commission this Iced Throne,” said Mat Foster, director of Glacial Art Ice Sculptors.
“It was one of the biggest honours and most difficult challenges of our professional careers, but for the greatest show on earth we wanted to create nothing short of our most impressive ice sculpture to date.”
