Ancient metal coffin handle circa 1920.
Handle that was used and that had a good time underground!
On the grounds of a winged hourglass.
Indeed the hourglass evokes the inexorable passage of time, every grain of sand representing a day of our life.
The hourglass is presented with wings of Dove or Angel, both messengers of God, as if the instrument of the measure of time became, with death, the soul that the Dove or the angel will convey to Heaven.
By its reversible side, the hourglass evokes the Faculty of a new life or real life when it is returned to restart a cycle.
