An artist treked 20 miles in heavy Alpine snow to create a sprawling, gorgeous tribute to Game of Thrones.

As part of a promotion for Sky Atlantic (which airs Thrones in the U.K.), Simon Beck created a direwolf sigil and the show’s legend “‘Winter is Coming” (though, by the look of things, it already came).

Beck says he choose the direwolf as a tribute to — season 5 spoiler alert — fallen Stark bastard Jon Snow (Kit Harington). The artist created the image overnight using only a compass as his guide.

Fun fact: If you’re in the U.K., you have to stay up until 2 a.m. on Monday mornings to watch the premiere of each episode. To cut down on piracy, as of last year HBO started airing Thrones on roughly the same date all over the world rather than making foregin territories wait for days/weeks/months for new episodes, though the downside for fans is that in some places, like the U.K., you end up watching at rather odd hours if you don’t want to get spoiled the next day.

In case you missed it, this weekend Thrones star Lena Headey tweeted that she’s actually seen some of the ultra-mysterious season 6, and had some strong opinions about it.
