Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.

"The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"

Q
Why is varys one of your favorite characters?
Anonymous
A

captainofalltheships:

Well for starters my answer was about the TV show(I’m fairly sure this is what you’re referring to), so while I still love him, he’s not top 4, because I didn’t feel right calling some of the characters in the adaptation my faves…

He is a favorite of mine because:

  • He is still largely a mystery and that fascinates me
  • He is truth and lies together
  • He knows everyone’s dirty little secret
  • He’s not nobility (at least not perceived as nobility) but is still feared and respected
  • He helps everyone and none but himself
  • His appearance is carefully crafted and can change to suit his whims
  • He is perhaps the strongest player at the moment and he has achieved this all on his own
  • So far there doesn’t seem to be someone who could betray him, kill him yes, but not betray him
  • His actions at the end of ADWD cause holy shit
  • He’s one of the few characters in asoiaf who I wouldn’t mind as roommates 
  • I love spiders
