Cherubim, as described in Ezekiel, have 4 faces (human, lion, bull, and eagle), 4 wings, human hands, and
hoofed feet. These angels have served as guardians of Eden, flanking God's throne, and figuratively described
as the chariot of God.
Closely associated with God and His presence, God instructed that images of cherubim be made of gold at the
two ends of the mercy seat on top of the Ark during its construction. And, in the construction of the inner
most rooms of Solomon's Temple, large cherubs (up to 10 cubits in height) were carved and adorned the walls
of the Holy of Holies (where the Ark was kept) and the Holy Place.
