Making the Dragon’s Egg from Game of Thrones

This Sunday marks the premiere episode of season four of Game of Thrones. And while the dragons are now all grown up and will probably be the saviours of Westeros once the White Walkers make their way past the Wall, it wasn’t so long ago they were still in those beautiful eggs back in season 1. It was Polish metalworks company, Rextorn which was put in charge of creating the large and scaly eggs, and in this short video, we see just how painstaking and meticulous the work was, incorporating techniques of repousse, chasing and metal spinning.
