Rob's Room: The Real Iron Throne per George R.R. Martin

George R.R. Martin indicates these images by Marc Simonetti are closest to the Iron Throne he envisioned while writing his Game of Throne books:
This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It's a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes... a symbol of conquest... it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few.
This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat, just as Aegon intended.
Wow... This would be incredible!  Can't you imagine King Geoffry looking down (figuratively and literally) upon everyone who walks into the Throne Room!
