Those wacky HBO people are at it again! The latest installment of Making Game of Thrones shows us a simple picture titled, “Inside the Red Keep.” Click to enlarge.
Fire And Blood: But what is it? First glance tells us it’s simply a gilded bureau in front of a wall mural. There’s a tall candle, a decorative raised bowl, what appears to be either a strange looking censer or a candle hood, two books, and a fancy, long-bladed dagger.
The picture tends to play tricks with the eye, however. On second glance I thought the bureau was actually part of the wall painting; it’s shot straight-on and the gilding looks slightly off. But the detail is much greater, especially in comparison to the birds. (Are those herons? Ornithologists—I’m calling on you!)
I am unsure whether this picture was taken in Malta or at the Paint Hall in Belfast.
Fun fact: This particular wall within the Red Keep is not, in fact, red. Wallmuralgate is open for business. Discuss!
