One version of "figure 8" could be explained:

When playing slurred bowing across two strings on the lower half of the bow
(for example: on open strings in quarter notes [down D, G,] [up D, G,] or [up D, G,] [down D, G,] etc.), the "figure 8" pattern becomes recognizable.

Playing this sort of slurred bowing on the upper half of the bow exagerates the increase size of the "figure 8" as you progress to the tip of the bow.
