Cheribium

Cheribium by Andre Clements

I sifted through literally hundreds of search engine results for photographs of team mascots.

While those cutsey babies with wings are popularly but ‘incorrectly’ called cherubs, oncologist the real things are strange allegedly rather fierce mythical beings that bridge the physical and meta-physical realms.  Perhaps a kind of antecedent for the holey ghost. Certainly heavily influenced by Egyptian mythology through Moses’ upbringing in the Egyptian court (Geers 2010), Judeo Christian scripture implies they are something of a vehicle for God’s presence. A merger perhaps of animism and antropomorphism.
