Cherubim also known as cherubs, are not the little cute angels we immagine them to be... I was intrigued by the idea when it was mentioned in my re lesson, so i thought i'd have a go at doing it since there aren't many pictures of them. Made using chalk pastels - the picture was a lot bigger but it would only scan in the middle - so alot is missed off  ie the wings) criticisms welcome =) They're mentioned in Ezekiel in a vision as: "Each of them had four faces and four wings. As for the likeness of their faces, they had the face of a man; and they four had the face of a lion on the right side; and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four had also the face of an eagle." and "Under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward the other; each one also had two wings covering its body on the one side and on the other."
