I’ve been reading George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series almost since it began, and have always been a fan of the intricate story and rich cast of characters he created. I had even fan cast Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister in my head before the TV series was anything more than a rumor! So naturally, I was excited for the HBO series when it began.
I found myself disappointed, however, in some of their interpretations of the House sigils – especially House Stark. Their sigil was always described as a leaping direwolf, gray on a white field. So the television version that showed nothing more than a wolf’s head has never sat well with me.
It was from this dissatisfaction that I decided to create my own versions of the House shields, based on the descriptions given in the books. I originally planned to do only Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen — but that plan didn’t last long, and now I have almost all of the major houses rendered in embroidery.
