Explore: ‘Game of Thrones’: A Pencil Microsculpture Exhibition by Salavat Fidai

Have you ever seen a microsculpture of the Iron Throne… on the tip of a pencil?

Brought to you by HBO Asia and multi-concept shop K+, this exhibition features the works of Salavat Fidai, the renowned Russian artist and sculptor who specialises in making miniature busts.

Fidai has been commissioned by HBO Asia to carve 16 themed sculptures from Game of Thrones into the tips of fragile graphite pencils.

The microsculpture carvings on display are: the Iron Throne, sigils from the various Houses (Stark, Targaryen, Greyjoy, Baratheon and Lannister), Hand of the King pin, Cersei’s new crown, Drogon the Dragon, the Three-Eyed Raven, the Night’s King, a White Walker, the Titan of Braavos, the Weirwood tree and the two swords (Brienne of Tarth’s Oathkeeper and Jon Snow’s Long Claw).

Using an X-Acto knife, a microscope and an illuminated loupe, Fidai spends between 12 hours to 14 days to create intricate and detailed art on tips on pencils with diameters between 2mm to 5mm. Together now: Whoa.

This Iron Throne microsculpture took Fidai two weeks to complete.

Small wonders: The Iron Throne microsculpture, one of the displays at the 'Game of Thrones: A Pencil Microsculpture  Exhibition'.
