Any way you look at it, Game of Thrones is a clever, complex, multilayered show.

Part of its appeal is that it invest meaning in every scene, every characters words and actions, with nothing left to chance.

As the knowledgeable people at ScreenPrism beautifully explain, this extends to its use of symbolism with each of the main houses in the tale of medieval power and desire represented by key, specifically-chosen imagery.

As the video details how each house is carefully and thoughtfully represented, you’re reminded once again why this show is so popular, why that adulation is so thoroughly deserved, and why it will be sorely missed once the final season hits our screens in 2018 or 2019.
