In my app, I have a collection of objects that I'm allowing the user to filter. To represent each filter, currently starred objects, watched objects and the user's object, I use the icons pictured below:

The icons in my app, a star, eye and person

However, I'm having trouble coming up with a way to represent the concept of all objects being visible. Does anyone know of a good icon to represent this?

I think in this particular context, you can replace the concept of 'all' with 'clear selected filters' so perhaps something that means 'clear' or 'reset' or the like would work.

One suggested example is that in the past I've used an 'x' over a funnel (which I was using to identify filtered lists) in apps.
