This Skyrim Dragonborn statue stands outside a local brewery in Austria.
It’s no surprise that in the decade since Skyrim’s release, it’s still a well-regarded RPG among the gaming community. Quite unlike other titles that simply went out of style -even if they were very popular at the time-, the Skyrim saga is in the discussions of Internet forums every time some modder creates some interesting modification for the open world.
In this sense, the recognition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may not be at its peak due to all the open world games that have reached the consoles of players around the world, but, as we mentioned, it is still remembered. in many ways and it would most certainly be one of the first titles that fans want to see in a remake or a new installment.
Skyrim can be remembered in the real world
While mods and funny anecdotes about the Skyrim open world experience are some of the ways fans have continued to bring Bethesda’s title to life, there are other ways the community chooses to pay tribute as well.
We have already seen that many fans prefer a simple cake with the theme of their favorite game, while others make illustrations of the characters and settings, but how about finding a statue based on the Dragonborn? This was the case for a Skyrim fan who found the statue in question at a local brewerywhich means that these interesting replicas could be anywhere.
Dragonborn, in case you don’t remember, is a playable character from Skyrim who must stop Alduin the Eater of Worlds from destroying the world. Of course, Skyrim’s Dragonborn became something of an icon for fansso more than one has decided to bring their taste for the character to real life by building commemorative statues.
A Reddit user named stiiniteshared a curious image of a Dragonbornm statue based on Skyrim. In the same way, it is not the first image that circulates through the networks of a giant statue of the character, however, this time it was a little different because of the place where he found it. As the Reddit user explained, he met her at a local brewery, located in the Moarpeter restaurant in Styria, Austria.
The photo shown in the publication was taken by stiinite and explains that its proportions were very large and full of details. Skyrim’s Dragonborn stance was standing on something very like a rock, and had a tiny plaque in front of it, indicating the name of the game. The statue was silver in color and showed the Dragonborn wielding a pair of weapons. The user’s description even mentions that this gigantic statue had been placed outside the establishment on the side of a large bush.
The objective of stiinite was not only to show the peculiar location of the Dragonborn statue, but I also wanted to trace his history. Although she tried to find out the truth after asking some residents of the area, they did not really know why he was there and the search was unfortunately unsuccessful. In addition to this, many members of the Skyrim community on Reddit who saw the image suggested some wild theories as to how this Dragonborn replica had found its way to the brewery.
Among the comments one player commented that statues like the one you just saw were being shipped to places like GameStop. However, the most reasonable answer seems to be that the owner of the brewery had bought it at an eBay auction. Even another user supported this theory arguing that he had a friend who bought one of the statues.
Once fans reached multiple conclusions, a netizen commented that he found a Facebook post from the brewery, dated June 2020, which referred to Dragonborn as “our knight” and continued that it was strange to have her there at first. , but now he had become part of the family.
So while the Dragonborn replica is set in an unlikely location, like the brewery, in the background it demonstrates the impact Skyrim has had on players since its release, even after more than a decade and so many new titles. We would have to wait to see if Bethesda has future plans for the RPG saga.
