Living Art

Today’s Daily Prompt asks:

One day, your favorite piece of art — a famous painting or sculpture, the graffiti next door — comes to life. What happens next?

I’m no fan of art in the traditional sense of the term. There aren’t any famous paintings or sculptures that really resonate with me and to be quite honest I don’t think I’m familiar with many great works of art other than the Mona Lisa. In fact, that’s the only one I know by name.

No shame at all.

When I thought about my ‘favourite piece of art‘, however, I thought about film. What if fictional characters from my favourite film/series came to life? And they had to get accustomed to life in the 21st century?

The first thing that came to mind was Game of Thrones. There is this witty Tumblr account (aren’t they all?) that repurposes behind the scenes interviews with Game of Thrones cast members as if they were giving commentary on some popular modern-day reality series.



Imagine trying to explain to these people that humanity has moved past usurping a throne and would rather vote someone in to lead us than have them fight for the right to lead us!

Cersei’s face says it all!

The question should be, will WE be ready for the GoT characters to come to life?

I think I’ll pass on this one.
