Sands of Time

Sands of Time Mandala

Sands of Time – by Varda K.


The idiom “sands of time” refers to an hourglass, and the flow of sand to show a set amount of time — usually an hour. The hourglass was probably invented around 150 BC, in Alexandria. Early hourglasses didn’t use sand at all, but used refined burnt eggshells or powdered marble.
