What could you see through the character 向?

Many Chinese characters are vivid hieroglyphic words. 向 is one of them:
向 means ‘direction’. Why?
Look! 向 shapes like a wall with a window in it,  and on the top of the wall (or house)you can see smoke rising that goes tilt into the air from the chimney!----------When I was child, villagers burnt firewood for cooking and sometimes they judged the wind-direction with the help of smoke from the stove!

Thanks for your reading and enjoyment!
