The Lady

"Cage me like an animal
A crown with gems and gold
Eat me like a cannibal
Chase the neon throne
Plants awoke and they slowly grow
Beneath the skin
So breathe in, breathe out

Let the human in"

Sansa Stark tribute ~ watercolor. I realize this is probably more relevant to the show than the books but it was a lot of fun to design. And I discovered Sophie Turner and I have the same birthday :love:

That is incredible! Can you explain the bear please?

Thank you! It's actually a wolf, Sansa's direwolf Lady who was killed in the first season of the show. The Lannister sword is through her heart- symbolizing how the Laniters killed her ideas of love and compassion. The Bolton sword is through the core, where they stabbed her in her home and family. (And also to some extent symbolizing the rape in the show). Littlefinger's arrow is through the head showing how Littlefinger messed with Sansa's psyche and manipulated her to get what he wanted. The wolf represents what happened to Sansa (technically it was killed in many ways) but Sansa is still standing and even more protective of herself and what's left. Hope that helps!
