Stunning Scottish Pewter Fancy Kilt Pin - Time Flies
The Autumn 2020 range of pins celebrates the wonderful and unique Scottish art found on seventeenth century tombs.
From the early 1600s Scots would increasingly have carved icons added to their tombstones, to convey certain messages about either themselves or the need to live a good life.
Here we have the winged hourglass, or TEMPUS FUGIT, a very popular motif on Scottish stones.
This represents both the passing of time, but also the soul, having run out of time, now ascending to the heavens.
