The Compass has many interpretations. Every culture has different interpretations of the different cardinal directions of the compass – For the Celts the directions symbolised the elements, the Chinese, different Zodiac Symbols and for the Romans the directions were the winds that blew across the Mediterranean. I chose to draw the tall ship on the compass because I am endlessly amazed that the seafarers on these ships relied solely on the instruments that they had to find their place in the oceans and make their way safely home. For me, a compass represents direction, finding your way in life, believing in your own abilities to guide you and self-reliance.
