The Garden Symbol Icon
Alice finds herself in a giant hall at the end of the rabbit hole, surrounded by locked doors. She becomes frustrated and sad, homesick for her family and her pet, but when a tiny door appears and she manages to peer inside at a beautiful garden, she has something to aim for. The garden, full of beautiful colors and cool fountains, is an idyllic vision and Alice is desperate to get to it. It represents her desire, her will, and her belief in goodness and happiness.
