The history of the cherub begins with the Hellenistic times and continues to the present. It starts with the transformation of the cherub in ancient times to the role of the angel in Christian art. Hence, the idea of the cherub goes from a mischievous angel known as Cupid who shoots arrow into people so they find instant love to more reserved cherubs in Christianity who protect and guard.
Come spend a few minutes with these wonderfully mesmerizing cherubs and see which one speak to the viewer and may become a future guardian and/or protector.
