Cherubim with Baby Faces
170 x 75cm, 1981
Tradition knows of cherubim as angels with children’s faces, confronting
and touching each other
with their wing tips.
Lined up in symmetry, they guard the entrance to paradise; in this context one also speaks of "changing the lights", i.e., consciousness and unconsciousness are interchanged, one lives and acts, quite inadvertently, from "the other side" and remains open toward the eternal.
