The elements used was the Compass, the Astrolabe, instrument for reading the stars position for boat navigation, the Lis flower always used on ancient maps as pointing the north position, the Cross of Christ used always on the boat sails, the Armillary Sphere, showing the celestial and geographical world positions and coordinates, such as the Meridian, Zenith, Solstice, Equinox, Horizon, Zodiac, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn. And finally the world map on the bike deposit and the country flags on the screen.
