Hand of the king pin

AUSTIN--Winter is coming. Well, actually, it's about to be spring, but as fans of "Game of Thrones" know, HBO is soon going to debut Season 4 of the hit show.

To celebrate the forthcoming debut, HBO brought a collection of dozens of original "Game of Thrones" artifacts -- gowns, suits, swords, even dragons -- to Austin for South by Southwest, and the exhibit is open to the public.

This is the Hand of the King pin, worn by the chief adviser to the sitting King.

If you're worried about spoilers, you might not want to read on.
