"Game of Thrones" won't return to our screens until July, but the festivities are already ramping up. HBO is holding an exhibition in Singapore showcasing 16 of the series' most iconic figures -- in sculptures small enough to sit atop a pencil.

Russian artist Salavat Fidai chiselled every microsculpture onto graphite by hand. Fidai says he has been creating micro-figures on pencil tips since end 2014.

Fidai says he wears gloves every time he works, since long-termed exposure to graphite can turn his skin black.

The making of the Stark Sigil -- one of Fidai's three favorites in this collection. Fidai says the entire process can take from one day to several weeks, depending on the complexity of the figure.

The completed works are housed in glass domes to keep our grubby fingers away. Pictured here is a White Walker.

The microsculptures were created on 6 mm graphite (except the Iron Throne, which sits on 11 mm pencil lead). Fidai had to use a microscope when carving out the details. The entire collection took four months to complete.

The White Walker doesn't beat the Iron Throne, which Fidai names as one of his favorites. It took him three weeks and two rejected pieces before he was satisfied with it. The swords were carved out individually.

The Titan of Braavos is another of Fidai's favourites. Fidai says it was challenging to keep the graphite from breaking because the figure stands on two very thin legs, but he made sure to get the detail of its "anatomy" in, such as the lines of his muscles.
