UK Based Company Constructed a Giant Paper Dragon To Celebrate The Return Of Game Of Thrones

Viking is a UK company that always tries to get creative with their office décor. Their latest project to inspire staff was their biggest yet – the creation of a whopping 13-metre-long dragon made entirely of paper! The aim of the project was to celebrate the return of the final season of Game Of Thrones and do a little marketing in the process. The dragon, which was primarily built by artist Andy Singleton, took 110 hours of design, construction and installation and "involved the equivalent of 1,200 A4 pieces of paper to make, and its final dimensions were 12.95 meters (42.5-feet) long, 2.8 meters (9.2-feet) wide and a wingspan of 6 meters (19.7-feet)." According to the company's blog, the dragon himself think it's "Impressive, but I'm not sure how I'm supposed to ride that into battle without getting any paper cuts or accidentally setting my mount on fire trying to burninate enemies. "Carefully." Yeah….you see the problem is Carefully is not my middle name". Here are some photos and a video of the construction process.
