Concept art for the Game of Thrones (2011) opening title sequence:

Our goal was to try to replicate something that looks and acts like a physical object. Art Director Rob Feng referenced Leonardo’s machines which have a timeless sense of design.

And here’s a detailed look at the astrolabe from the centre of the world:

We show three close-ups of those bands that tell the pre-history of the world in relief-sculpture form. They tell about dragons attacking Westeros. They tell about how the different houses on Westeros got together and defeated those dragons, and how those houses, represented by their respective animals, bowed in allegiance to the Baretheon stag.
Angus Wall, creative director

I’m on a bit of a Game of Thrones kick at the moment, so expect more on this blog!
