Cherubim

Cherubim (plural of cherub) are one of the ranks of angels; they frequently appear in altarpieces and religious paintings together with Seraphim.

They are usually depicted as children with two or three pairs of red or blue wings around their heads, but sometimes appear as winged heads alone. They most often appear as small children. They are sometimes referred to as Putti.
