The Cherubim are often depicted as having body parts resembling humans and animals. It is theorised that the Sphinx of Ancient Egypt is a Cherub, as well as the Lamassu of Ancient Sumer. These protective beings were said to be the inspiration for creating the stereotypical image of an angel as being a beautiful human with wings.
The four faces described in biblical texts represent the fixed signs of the zodiac, as well as the corresponding elements. It is said that a Cherub moves like a flash of lightning and that their role is to guard the Garden of Eden. This is why similar statues are often placed around temple entrances to protect holy ground.
These beings are said to be great sources of divine knowledge, wisdom and protection.
