Chainsaw artist Steven Kenzora got all "Game of Thrones" before "Game of Thrones" was even a hit.

Just check out what he did with this tree stump.

The image of the impressive dragon sculpture is currently breathing fire on Reddit, even though Kenzora completed the project using a chainsaw and other power tools about four years ago, he told The Huffington Post.

Reddit user Pyro_Cat used to climb the tree but wrote it was later cut to a stump. Pyro_Cat's family then hired Kenzora to craft something while they went away on vacation.

The dragon carving stuck with Kenzora. "Probably my [favorite] one," he wrote of the sculpture on his Facebook page.

And that's saying something. According to chainsawsculptors.com, Kenzora, of Peterborough, Ontario, has completed about 1,500 pieces.

Check out a 2011 video of Kenzora's work below.
