MOLISE (Italy), June 18 — Some fans go the extra mile when it comes to honouring their beloved fandom as one particular fan showed by carving a character from the Game of Thrones out of watermelon.
Italian fruit carver Valeriano Fatica paid tribute to hit HBO series and its creator George R.R. Martin when he spent 18 hours on a sculpture featuring the head of the Night King from the show.
The Night King is the leader of the White Walkers and appeared in the fourth, fifth and sixth season of the wildly popular show.
Fatica made clever use of the watermelon’s greenish-white rind to depict the frozen parts of the Night King’s face, and carved facial muscles into the red parts of the watermelon, mirroring the skinless appearance of the Night King.
He also attached crown-like spikes onto the bust using toothpicks.
Fatica has made many sculptures out of various fruits on his YouTube channel, including movie characters like Joker from the Batman series, anime characters from Dragonball and other sculptures featuring dragons and animals.
