Dany

For the night is dark and full of terrors shawls. Next we give you, Mother of Dragons from the TV show, Game of Thrones. In the final episode, Dany has a dragon coming from behind her and for a second it looks as though she's got wings. You can see it here. And here's the photo after the dragon begins it's flight. Why is this important? Because the entire KAL is themed off of Dany and her dragons. If you love dragons, you will LOVE this shawl, it's a must have for every dragon lover, or anyone who loves GoT. MKAL will begin on August 7th, there are 4 clues each will come out on Wednesdays.

THE DESIGN
I began designing long before I saw the aforementioned scene and just built what I needed into the shawl. It was very apparent that I nailed the design to her ending when I saw the dragon coming from behind her. I actually got goose bumps and was sitting there stunned with my mouth hanging open. The shape of the shawl begins with a Faux Faroese which morphs into a 6 wedge shawl with three dimensional, beaded spines.  The spines are the spines of the dragons wings, the overall pattern is dragon scales. The borders are all taken from her massive hair braiding. The ending has arrows and spear heads which was her waging war on the world. So you see, the entire shawl is very spot on to the theme, your going to love it.

A bit about our Myth theme, dragons
WIKI:A dragon is a large, serpent-like legendary creature that appears in the folklore of many cultures around the world. Beliefs about dragons vary drastically by region, but dragons in western cultures since the High Middle Ages have often been depicted as winged, horned, four-legged, and capable of breathing fireDragons in eastern cultures are usually depicted as wingless, four-legged, serpentine creatures with above-average intelligence.
The earliest attested dragons resemble giant snakes. Dragon-like creatures are first described in the mythologies of the ancient Near East and appear in ancient Mesopotamian art and literature. Stories about storm-gods slaying giant serpents occur throughout nearly all Indo-European and Near Eastern mythologies. Famous prototypical dragons include the mušḫuššu of ancient MesopotamiaApep in Egyptian mythologyVṛtra in the Rigveda; the Leviathan in the Hebrew BiblePythonLadonWyvern, and the Lernaean Hydra in Greek mythologyJörmungandrNíðhöggr, and Fafnir in Norse mythology; and the dragonfrom Beowulf.
The popular western image of a dragon as winged, four-legged, and capable of breathing fire is an invention of the High Middle Ages based on a conflation of earlier dragons from different traditions. In western cultures, dragons are portrayed as monsters to be tamed or overcome, usually by saints or culture heroes, as in the popular legend of Saint George and the Dragon. They are often said to have ravenous appetites and to live in caves, where they hoard treasure. These dragons appear frequently in western fantasy literature, including The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, and A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

The word "dragon" has also come to be applied to the Chinese lung (龍, Pinyin long), which are associated with good fortune and are thought to have power over rain. Dragons and their associations with rain are the source of the Chinese customs of dragon dancing and dragon boat racing. Many East Asian deities and demigods have dragons as their personal mounts or companions. Dragons were also identified with the Emperor of China, who, during later Chinese imperial history, was the only one permitted to have dragons on his house, clothing, or personal articles.
