Symbols - What does heaven look like

Bagatelle

 

The symbolism of the Bagatelle is described under the heading of the Pinball.

Pinball is based on the game of bagatelle which goes back to the 1600s [and earlier] and the symbolism is inherited and has even been refined from this. 

Louis XIV knew his symbolism, he called himself the Sun-king, the Palace of Versailles was symbolic and had such features as a Hall of Mirrors, thus it is not surprising that it was in Louis’ reign that bagatelle was invented.
