The spirals have been seen many times during the show and were present in the opening episode during the scene in which Tormund, played by Kristofer Hivju, and Beric Dondarrion, played by Richard Dormer, found 10-year-old Ned Umber nailed to a wall surrounded by severed body parts.

Hill told The New York Post, “As we saw with Bran and the Three-Eyed Raven, the spiral pattern was sacred to the Children of the Forest, who created the Night King by sacrificing a captured man in a spiral ‘henge of stones’. The Night King then adopted the symbol as a sort of blasphemy, like Satan with the upside-down cross.”

The showrunner David Benioff said, “One of the things we learn from these cave paintings is that the White Walkers didn’t come up with those images, they derived them from their creators, the Children of the Forest. These are patterns that have mystical significance for the Children of the Forest.”
