The 40-foot sculpture was placed on Charmouth beach in the UK to promote the third season of HBO's epic fantasy arriving on blinkbox.

A 40-foot “dragon skull” was placed on Charmouth beach in the UK by video streaming service blinkbox to celebrate the arrival of the third season of Game of Thrones. The beach was chosen because dinosaur fossils have been found there in the past.

The sculpture, which is the size of a London bus, surprised fossil hunters, holiday makers and local dog walkers on the Dorset beach.
