Similar to the Cherubim, they are represented as having the human form, face, voice, two feet, and two hands, but with six wings. With two wings they cover their face and with two, their feet, — a sign of reverence, and with two they fly, significant of their speed in carrying out the will of God. Seen by Isaiah in visionary form… — ( Isaiah 6:2,3 )
