The one in the show is cool, don't get me wrong, but in the books, it's described as being made of one thousands blades. HBO's version is nowhere near it.

It was done by Marc Simonetti, a veteran concept artist with over ten years experience who has worked in print, film, advertising and video games.
In that time, he's done stuff for clients like Activision, EA, Ubisoft, Dark Horse, Wizards of the Coast, Sony and Fantasy Flight Games.
You can see more of his work at his personal site.
