Foxtel And DDB Build Epic Graveyard To Mourn The End Of Game Of Thrones

To commemorate the highly anticipated eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, DDB Sydney and Foxtel have built a 2000 square metre graveyard that pays tribute to the bloodshed and more than a hundred thousand individual deaths over the past seven seasons.

The ‘Grave of Thrones’, situated inside Centennial Park in Sydney from April 12 – 14, was designed by DDB Sydney and built in a collaborative effort from Revolver/Will O’Rourke and The Glue Society.

The final resting place is designed as a place for GoT fans to reflect on the deaths of the show’s most iconic faces, as the show prepares to reach its epic conclusion.

It features 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 Game of Thrones’ most infamous characters, including Joffrey Lannister, Ramsay Bolton, Khal Drogo, Tywin Lannister, Littlefinger and Olenna Tyrell.

Every single grave has been created in staggering detail, closely referencing the lives and deaths of the characters featured, including Hodor’s headstone which honours one of the show’s most loved characters and depicts his tragic death at the exit of a cave.

The graveyard was created by a huge and passionate team of Australia’s top sculptors, designers, painters and builders, who worked hundreds of hours to build graves richly layered in GoT stories and references.

The graveyard is open to the public from Friday, April 12 to Sunday, April 14, from 7am – 6pm.
