THe HBO intro to Game of Thrones starts with a ball of light encircled by several bands. Then it soars across a map of Westeros. Then in the middle of the intro is the ball of light again. Some more moving across the map, dwelling in this place or that. Then again, the ball of light encircled by bands at the end of the intro.
I recognize most of the imagery as being related to the story. But I still haven't figured out the ball of light encircled by bands. Is that related to the story somehow?
