15 Dead Game of Thrones Characters Re-Animated Through Magnificent Art

Few shows make people feel… anything, quite like Game of Thrones does. When a character on the show dies, it makes people happy, but usually sad, depressed, angry. And in honor of these dead characters, comes this wonderful art project.

Ertaç Alt?nöz, or ertacaltinoz on Deviantart, took the more notable dead Game of Thrones characters from the TV show and gave them a Wight (GOT zombies) kind of makeover, with the way of death of something from the death scene itself showing in the image, sometimes as hint alone, creating a powerful collage of morbidity and beauty fused together.
