There are many, wide and varied and some can even be seen in our own lives, such a rose symbolizes beauty and delicacy, an eagle stands for the freedom and liberties people are entitled to and a gravestone represents the death we are all destined for in the end. Oftentimes however, an author will use a less specific known symbol and you must clearly see how objects are used in relation to plot and characters to decipher, it is like a game.
