Giant dragon skull washes up on Dorset’s Jurassic coast

A spectacular dragon skull the size of a London bus appeared to have been washed up on Charmouth beach on Dorset’s Jurassic coast. The impressive sculpture was installed by movie and TV streaming service blinkbox to celebrate the arrival [on blinkbox] of the third installment of HBO’s Game of Thrones on the service.

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!

Update: Three more!
