The Death of Hodor

One of the most memorable scenes from HBO’s Game of Thrones was the death of Hodor. I was commissioned by Fellowes to sculpt this scene as part of an iPhone/iPad stand.

The Limited edition (3,570 pieces) retails for $39.95. the value created for the client is over $140,000–this is a great return on investment!

Hodor’s anguished expression was a key part of the sculpt, and it had to be approved by HBO…

After the sculpture was approved, it was sent off to the factory in China for production.

It was a fun project to work on a licensed sculpture, and I enjoyed bringing this scene to life!
