Aztec skull with mosaic inlay of turkois, shells and mother-of-pearl, Mexico.
On the forehead of the skull a snake has been depicted. Probably this person had a special connection to the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, the feathered snake. Mixtec craftsmen were very skilled in the art of making mosaics -only a few objects of their work remain.
No one will be alive by the last book. In fact, they all die in the fifth. The sixth book will be just a thousand-page description of snow blowing across the graves. — George R.R. Martin (when asked if he was going to let any Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire characters live)
