Get Up Close To "Game of Thrones" Pencil Microsculptures by Salavat Fidai at K+ - 22 April to 4 June 2017

HBO's insanely popular TV series "Game of Thrones" is known for portraying scenes on a grand majestic scale. As Season 7 is set to return to our screens on 17 July 2017, the battle for the Iron Throne is expected to get more intense.

However, to promote the upcoming new season, HBO Asia is offering fans a chance to view Westeros in a whole different level - a very tiny level to be exact. The company has specially commissioned Russian artist/ sculptor Salavat Fidai to carve a series of microsculptures on the tips of graphic pencil leads!

16 of these astoundingly intricate carvings will be on display at K+ Curatorial Space this coming weekend till 4 June, and it is free to attend! The sculptures include iconic images like the White Walker, Hand of the King, various different house sigils, Drogon, Three-Eyed Raven, the Oathkeeper and more!




Besides the Game of Thrones microsculptures, there will be his other fantasy-based exhibits on site as well!
