An exquisite pair of Giltwood Cherubs


An angelic pair of high relief wall-hanging winged cherubs in the Baroque style, posed as if in flight, and looking downward with open arms and expressive faces. These delightful babes are hand carved from wood with perfect anatomical proportions, and then gilded in a lustrous gold leaf. Usually depicted as small, plump, winged boys, cherubs are often associated with Cupid (or Eros), the Roman and Greek gods of love.
