Depicted in a 14th-century fresco by Lorenzetti in Sienna, a 16th-century engraving by Dürer in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Blackbeard the pirate’s flag, and countless other artwork, the hourglass is a recurring image not only referencing the passage of time, but balance, the sky and the earth, the female figure, and more.
This richly symbolic object is also a calming and beautiful desk accessory. Breathe for five minutes, stretch for five minutes, take a five-minute break to clear your mind as the sand moves in a tranquilizing stream from one chamber to the other.
Each hourglass is made of glass and is packaged in a box ready to give as a gift. Choose 5 minute or 30 minute hourglass.
