Each panel is inspired by ancient geometric San rock engravings, of the oldest art forms found in South Africa, related to the San's deep connection to the land. Historically, San rock art was not recognised as an art form, but by incorporating art forms of the first peoples into the court building, all creative mediums are valued.
