Foxtel builds epic graveyard to mourn Game of Thrones finale
To commemorate the highly anticipated eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, DDB Sydney and the exclusive Australian broadcaster Foxtel built a 2000 square meter graveyard that paid tribute to the bloodshed and more than a hundred thousand individual deaths over the past seven seasons.
The “Grave of Thrones” was situated inside Centennial Park in Sydney and featured more than 30 gravestones, including two grand family mausoleums housing the deceased members of House Stark and House Baratheon and the headstones of some of <em>Game of Thrones’</em> most infamous characters.
The final resting place was designed as a place for GoT fans to reflect on the deaths of the show’s most iconic faces, as the show’s epic conclusion drew near. Visitors brought tributes to lay on the tombs of their most beloved characters.
Those that went to the “Grave of Thrones” were able to download a map at graveofthrones.com, where they could also find an audio tour of the cemetery, illustrating the meticulous detail featured on each grave.
