The map details 334 Westeros and Essos locations, twenty-six of which are portrayed with an engraved icon. It also features engraved animals, over 1900 trees, and individual islands as small as 4mm in diameter.  The 3D effect is enhanced by mountain ranges consisting of up to five contour height-derived layers, all unique in shape providing saddles, peaks and plateaus with engraved mountain ranges varying in styles and sizes.

The entire piece is sealed with multiple coats of Polycrylic to protect it against wear, tear, and light moisture.
