Cherubs?

Cherubs?

Postby BlackTail » Fri Oct 07, 2011 8:48 pm

The idea of cherubim, even images, have been around far longer than the Christian idea of angels. According to the a few sources cherubim, the choir of angels, is thought to appear as creatures comprised of parts from lions, humans, eagles, and oxes. These four creatures come up often with many associations. They relate to the equinoxes, gospels, and the zodiac. They also are the four animals that compromise the Sphinx and Lamassu (winged bull). These angels are theorized to be the source of the sphinx and winged bull images and myth.
