Innovative minds can be found in the most unexpected of places. The motivation to build something different often arises from something that one loves dearly. One Game of Thrones fan from Canada showed off his creativity and love for his favorite show by building a life-sized dragon sculpture, that looks so realistic it can even be mistaken for the real thing!

Metal sculptor Kevin Stone of Chilliwack, British Columbia is building the dragon which stands 17 metres (approximately 56 feet) high and weighs 5450 kilograms (more than 12,000 pounds), is covered in metallic scales, and what’s more, it even breathes fire! Stone, along with his wife, have been working on the statue for 13 months with only the massive wings and a safety test of the fire-breathing system left to complete. Stone told CBC that the project, has turned out better than he imagined.

“It’s obviously extremely challenging,” Stone said. “And it’s turned out really better than I could imagine.”

The dragon is a piece that Stone is making for a customer, businessman Matthew Focht who came to Stone after seeing another piece the artist had made, an eagle sculpture created for Dolly Parton that is installed at her Dollywood amusement park in Tennessee. Focht wanted a dragon and that led him to Drogon. In Game of Thrones, Drogon is the last of Daenerys‘ three dragons and is last seen destroying the Iron Throne before carrying her body away across the Narrow Sea in the series finale.
