The Patternmaker (Essosi god)

Recommended Posts

For information, see https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Pattern and https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Patternmaker%27s_Maze . But when I first read about Essosi belief in the Patternmaker, my memory went back to my father's association with real-world steel industry including casting steel aided by metal founder's patterns as described in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pattern_(casting) , and an idea that it was believed that that god made the patterns which something then used in making living things including people. Patternmakers  are important men in foundries. I wonder if GRRM first had that idea about the Patternmaker, and later changed his mind.
