'Game of Thrones' series embroidered into 90m long tapestry

London: HBO's iconic series 'Game of Thrones' is being depicted on a 90-metre long tapestry that covers the entirety of the events of the epic-fantasy drama. A team of volunteers at the Ulster Museum, Belfast (Northern Ireland) are giving final touches to a 300-foot-long tapestry showcasing all eight seasons of the saga, which concluded in May.

Done in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry, which depicts the 11th-century Norman conquest of England, the finished piece will be transported to France to hang near its predecessor in September. Valerie Wilson, costume and textiles curator at National Museums Northern Ireland, told The Guardian that tapestry was a perfect storytelling tool.

He revealed 30 embroiders are working on and off for two years on the tapestry, stitching embellishments on icons such as "blood red weddings", "emerald green wildfire" and "cold-blue White Walkers". Wilson added that those contributing to the project, including actors in the show, have been asked to sign non-disclosure agreements. The museum display of the tapestry comes with an age warning.
