Fans of the TV show Game of Thrones can recap the first six series via a vast 250ft Bayeux-style tapestry that has gone on display at the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

The tapestry was woven and hand-embroidered from material provided by Thomas Ferguson Irish Linen in Banbridge.

The tapestry is made with linen from Northern Ireland and depicts Game of Thrones® seasons 1 to 6 - with blood red weddings, golden Lannister hair, emerald green wildfire, cold-blue White Walkers and jet black ravens.

The artwork was unveiled at the Ulster Museum in Belfast on Monday afternoon.

Each week the tapestry will be added to with scenes from season seven, which has just been released, taking its final size to 77m.

The tapestry will be hung in the Ulster Museum and will be open to the public from Saturday July 22.

Locations which the show has used in Northern Ireland include Tollymore Forest Park in CoDown, Binevenagh in Co Londonderry, Castle Ward in Co Down, The Dark Hedges in Co Antrim and Glenariff in Co Antrim.

John McGrillen, CEO of Tourism NI, said: "Game of Thrones has been transformative for Northern Ireland as a screen tourism destination".

Tourism Ireland's latest campaign, created in partnership with HBO, offers fans the chance to re-live their favourite scenes from the show all year long. To explore the tapestry, visit http://www.ireland.com/tapestry.
