Artists Create Epic 285-Foot-Long 'Game of Thrones' Tapestry

Playing 285-Foot-Long 'Game of Thrones' Tapestry Depicts Key Scenes From the Show

This isn't your great-, great-, great-, great-grandmother's tapestry.

Fans are flocking to a "Game of Thrones"-themed piece of art that stitches together key scenes from the hit HBO series in breathtaking detail.

The "Game of Thrones" tapestry is on display in the same city in France as its inspiration, the 950-year-old Bayeux tapestry. 

The Bayeux tapestry tells the story of William the Conqueror's invasion of England in 1066 through 58 scenes, 626 characters and 202 horses. 

Inspired by the 11th century embroidered work of art, artists in Northern Ireland spent 1,500 hours creating the "Game of Thrones" tapestry. 

“The 'Game of Thrones' tapestry references the Bayeux tapestry stylistically and in terms of some of the motifs that have been used and the way that the story unrolls in a linear fashion,” the project's chief embroiderer, Valerie Wilson, told Reuters

And with its decapitated heads and other bloody scenes from the series, it's "a long way from most women's needlework magazines," Wilson added. 

The "Game of Thrones" tapestry is on display at the Hotel du Doyen in Bayeux until Dec. 31.
