The sixth and finaly week of Tourism Ireland’s Glass of Thrones series of installations has been revealed, at Titanic Studios in Belfast.
The final installation represents the show’s Iron Throne, complete with a built-in seat in front of the window, specially designed for fans to take selfies with.
As the show drew to a close, Tourism Ireland has also unveiled a new behind the scenes video about the stained-glass windows, showcasing how they were created.
Throughout this final season of Game of Thrones, Tourism Ireland has erected six freestanding, stained-glass windows in Belfast. Tourism Ireland’s aim was to ensure the show’s legacy would be felt long after the final episodes aired, so that the connection between Game of Thrones and Northern Ireland will be remembered.
In creating the windows, Tourism Ireland began by analysing a decade’s worth of fan search data, to identify and categorise the most loved scenes, characters and themes. Illustrators then visualised these findings and began painting the windows.
Each week after one of the final episodes aired, Tourism Ireland unveiled a new window in Belfast, creating a fan trail leading visitors across the city, from the first installation at City Hall to the final installation at the home of the show’s production at Titanic Studios.
