These amazing designs were created by Steve Casino, 49, who has been moulding the nourishing snacks into well known celebrities for nearly three years.
Pennsylvania-born Steve was commissioned by MTV to make caricatures of HBO's critically acclaimed fantasy drama, including popular characters Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen.
The artist has also created a diverse number of peanut characters including pop-star Taylor Swift, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and Mad Men actor Jon Hamm.
Steve uses the shells of peanuts, along with wood, bamboo, wire, polymer clay and acrylic paint to create his designs which can take up to 20 hours to complete.
He said: “The biggest project I've had was making the 12 Game Of Thrones characters – MTV used them in their social media as puppets to make funny recaps of each episode.
“I've had great reactions from celebrities when they see my designs, many of them share them on social media.
“Trent Reznor from the band Nine Inch Nails commissioned me to make peanuts of his family.”
Steve's masterpieces cost between $175 and $500, while group commissions, such as the iconic band The Beatles, can cost up to $1000.
And the Kentucky resident has recently started creating surreal designs, pushing the limits of what is possible with a paint brush and a peanut.
He said: “After a few years of strictly making humans I branched off into more surreal designs.
“They have been extremely well-received on social media with the peanut dachshund being the most popular followed by peanut sushi.”
