Two battles are creeping upon India, on Monday.

Rahul Gandhi will face Smriti Irani for the battle of Amethi.

Khaleesi Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen will face Queen Cersei Lannister for the battle for the Iron Throne.

Before India goes to polls and the fourth episode of the final season of Game of Thrones is released, artist Robert M Ball has created his third 'Beautiful Death' portrait comprising of all major deaths in the eighth season till date. HBO tweeted the dark image, writing:

The image features Arya's Catspaw dagger stabbing the Night King's sigil depicting the last episode's scene where Arya Stark had killed the Night King, thus destroying all his ice-knights and the army of the undead along with the resurrected ice-dragon Viserion. 

The shattering shards of ice in the image reflect the major deaths in the season like Melissandre - the fire witch, the ice knights, Jorah Mormont, Viserion, Beric Dondarrion and others who died in the battle of Winterfell. Theon Greyjoy occupies a special place with half his face under the shadow of a wolf, acknowledging his Stark side.

Curiously it also features a silhouette resembling Arya Stark with needle clutched in her hand with the words 'NOT TODAY' at the tip where the blade of the Catspaw dagger shatters the ice.

Speaking to Game of Thrones producers HBO, the artist- Ball has said, “I decided straight away that it was all or nothing, and I would show the deaths of all the major characters in one image. It was such a tense, exciting and epic episode that I've tried to convey the feeling by shattering my own image template."

Talking about the colour scheme chosen for the image, he added, "For the colors I wanted the feeling of the dead of night, cold blues and greens, with white drawing your eye to Catspaw's 'pointy end."

The artist had previously created a portrait depicting the fireplace scene which was played in the second episode of this season in which the characters Tyrion and Jamie Lannister along with Brienne, Podrick, Ser Davos and Tormund huddled around the fireplace at the Stark Castle, sharing  a last drink in the night before the army of the undead led by the Night King who rides the newly resurrected ice-dragon Viserion, attacks Winterfell. 

The final season of the popular HBO-produced TV series Game of Thrones (GOT) started with its first episode aired on April 14, 2019.
