Set Photos from Second Season of GAME OF THRONES Reveal Statues of The Seven

     July 29, 2011

Though we’ve yet to see any photos of actual filming for the anticipated second season of HBO’s epic fantasy series Game of Thrones, based on the books by author George R.R. Martin, some photos of a prominent set piece surfaced today that should get those familiar with the series excited. The photos clearly reveal the statue of The Seven, the predominant Gods of Westeros which include the Father, the Mother, the Warrior, the Maiden, the Smith, the Crone, and the Stranger (who represents Death).

As someone who hasn’t read the books, I can’t exactly tell you how they come into play in the second season, and we’d rather not spoil what could be a major plot point anyway, so if you’re dying to know more about these statues, the rest of the world wide web is at your disposal. Otherwise check out the photos of the statue below and be sure to check out our recent post about the future of Game of Thrones and more from the Television Critics Association Press Tour going on right now. Hit the jump to check out the photos.

Here are the photos (from Flickr user Jackie O. Gillespie via TV Overmind):

    there is no real plot around the statues people pray alot in the book. it is cool to see them though although each sept has a different effigy of the seven so it depends on where these are

    No plot point? Oh, they will burn for R’hllor alright, Dragonstone it is ;)

    My money says that is the beach on Dragon Stone…. very exciting. I saw the first season and told myself that I would not read ahead… that lasted about a week. George Martin’s writing is fantastic and reading the books along with seeing the show in my opinion only enhances the experience.

    It pisses me off when someone being paid to write an article won’t do 5 minutes of research to add some context to a photograph. You know where I would normally go for that kind of information? Collider! That’s just lazy man. The world wide web was at your disposal too, Ethan.

    Are you being intentionally thick? He just said he didn’t want to ruin it…

    As stated by others: that is obviously Dragonstone.
