This Artist Reenvisioned Game Of Thrones In Feudal Japan

List RulesVote up the art that would fetch a fair price in Qarth.

One of Game of Thrones' most endearing qualities lies in the many different analogies it draws between the real world and that of Westeros. The various Houses of the Seven Kingdoms and those who serve under them resemble feudal systems of times past, making Game of Thrones fan art inspired by feudal Japan a perfect fit. Artist Seiji took it upon himself to explore this fascinating parallel with woodblock-inspired interpretations of Game of Thrones reenvisioned in feudal Japan. Westeros' own feudal systems, combined with many strict codes of honor and a reverence for dragons, matches up quite well with ancient Japan's own beliefs and inner-workings.

The images below include some of Game of Thrones' classic scenes, both happy and sad. Much more "historically" accurate than Game of Thrones characters in '90s fashion, these woodblock scenes tell this now timeless story through an entirely new perspective. As a warning, many of these woodblocks contain SPOILERS, so proceed with caution.
