Game of Thrones gets Bayeux Tapestry treatment

The Bayeux Tapestry is an embroidered depiction of the events leading up to the Norman Invasion of England and culminating with the Battle of Hastings.

The Bayeux Tapestry was created in the 11th century, a few months after the Battle of Hastings. It measures 70 meters (230 feet) in length and 50 centimeters (20 inches) tall and is a masterpiece of the early medieval period.

Using the Bayeux Tapestry as inspiration, Tourism Ireland commissioned a tapestry to depict every episode of Game of Thrones!

Each season is illustrated on an 11 meter panel. The eight panels are combined to create one long tapestry. The finished tapestry measures over 77 meters (253 feet) and 71 centimeters (28 inches) tall!
