Two pairs of perched roaring dragons holding onto a pearl with their claws decorate the sides of this beautiful red sand hourglass encasement. The ball the dragons are holding is often associated with spiritual energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, immortality, thunder, or the moon. Dragons are meant to watch and guard treasure which make them indispensable for this hourglass. Hourglass measures the passage of time and there is nothing more valuable than time. Makes a wonderful gift as a tabletop decoration.
