Hourglass

secretsoftheserpent

The function of an Hourglass is to mark the passing of time as sand trickles through the narrow waist in the middle of the transparent glass container.  It is a very old Freemasonry symbol.  Many think the Egyptians use a clepsydra or water-clock and it was the predecessor of the hourglass.  I got news for them.  If it’s a Freemason and Alchemical symbol, it was used in ancient Egypt.  After all we get Hour from the name Horus.
