A memorable setting is a key component in any memorable story. This is especially true in popular science fiction and fantasy tales, where settings and locations have become as famous and crucial to their worlds as the characters in them.
It was one of the most shocking moments in all of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The Night King resurrects the dragon Viserion and rides it toward the Wall, bringing the structure down in a blaze of icy fury. It’s one of those moments you want to relive over and over again. And now you can...with a two-foot tall statue.

There are some great, great posters out there for Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. But really, nothing can touch the original. Roger Kastel’s iconic, terrifying image of a giant shark about to eat a swimmer has captivated the world since 1975, and continues to be the most recognizable (and sought after) image of the film.
You may not know the name Matt Ferguson, but odds are you know his art.
