Each of the four panels in ”Compass” contains symbols of the four directions: North, South, East and West. The top panel – North- contains the North Star which is the anchor of the sky. It is a landmark that helps those who follow it determine direction and guide one towards a given destination. Clockwise, the following panel is East with illustrations of traditional eastern design patterns signifying a connection with the history and identity of Eastern cultures. The bottom panel, South, portrays palm trees that are typically indigenous to southern tropical areas. Lastly, the West panel encompasses edifices meant to represent the urban infrastructure so commonly found in western culture.
