The latest element of Tourism Ireland’s 2016 Game of Thrones campaign has been revealed – and this time it involves a painting in the Ulster Museum which has been re-imagined to include mythical characters from the world of Game of Thrones.
Tourism Ireland enlisted the help of an art restorer to re-create a landscape painting hanging in the Ulster Museum. The painting – ‘Landscape with Sheep’ by William Mark Fisher – has been ‘updated’ and now includes a Game of Thrones giant and dragon. The new painting goes on display in the Ulster Museum today (Tuesday, 14 June), side-by-side with the original, and will remain on display until September.
Tourism Ireland has released a short film and images of the painting – on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube – in 10 markets (including Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Scandinavia). The short film shows the original painting on display in the Ulster Museum, side-by-side with the newly-created painting; and also shows the reactions of visitors and staff at the Ulster Museum to the new painting.
