#Omens&Symbols . . . . the Hourglass

Contains the sands of time and is symbolic of time passing and life running out.
Is symbolizes the transitory nature of life and indicates that death is unavoidable.
Death and old Father Time invariably carry an hourglass to remind mankind of the
passage of time. Hourglasses were a popular motif on tombs and memorials in
the 18th century.
