👼Meaning and Description

The "👼" emoji, is known by many names like "Baby Angel", "Cherub" or "Cupid". The design of the emoji is from a religious concept, it depicts a baby with angelic wings🪽 and a glowing halo above its head, the universal symbol of sanctity, purity, innocence, and endearing charm.

At first, cherubs are not described as cute, chubby babies, they're depicted as heavenly beings with four faces—one of a man, an ox, a lion, and an eagle. They also have two sets of wings and feet like a calf. And the design of this emoji was actually influenced by the cherub imagery of the Renaissance era, where artists depicted angelic babies with wings as a symbol of purity and innocence.

The primary meaning of the baby angel emoji (👼) signifies innocence, purity, or angelic behavior. It's often used to represent someone doing a good deed, or a person (especially a child) behaving exceptionally well. But that's not all! This emoji can also convey spiritual or religious sentiments, embodying the spirit of a guardian angel or divine protection.

The "👼" emoji is versatile on social media. For example, it can represent cuteness or innocence, like when you spot a kiddo doing something adorable. If there's a sad event, like a loss, this emoji can offer a sense of comfort, implying that the loved one has become an angel. When there's a new addition to the family, you might use this emoji to say, "Welcome, little 👼!" It's also a great way to suggest someone's been really kind, as if they were an angel. You can use it in chats about religion, where it can stand for angels or heaven.

In a nutshell, the 👼 emoji is more than just a cute icon. It's a gentle reminder of our inner purity, an uplifting symbol of goodness, and a universal sign of divine protection.

Wikipedia: 👼 Cherub
A cherub (; plural cherubim; Hebrew: כְּרוּב‎ kərūv, pl. כְּרוּבִים kərūvîm) is one of the unearthly beings who directly attend to God, according to Abrahamic religions. The numerous depictions of cherubim assign to them many different roles, such as protecting the entrance of the Garden of Eden.In Jewish angelic hierarchy, cherubim have the ninth (second-lowest) rank in Maimonides' Mishneh Torah (12th century), and the third rank in Kabbalistic works such as Berit Menuchah (14th century). De Coelesti Hierarchia places them in the highest rank alongside Seraphim and Thrones.In the Book of Ezekiel and (at least some) Christian icons, the cherub is depicted as having two pairs of wings, and four faces: that of a lion (representative of all wild animals), an ox (domestic animals), a human (humanity), and an eagle (birds). Their legs were straight, the soles of their feet like the hooves of a bull, gleaming like polished brass. Later tradition ascribes to them a variety of physical appearances. Some early midrashic literature conceives of them as non-corporeal. In Western Christian tradition, cherubim have become associated with the putto (derived from classical Cupid/Eros), resulting in depictions of cherubim as small, plump, winged boys.In Islam, the cherubim are the angels closest to God. Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall noted Rūḥ as one of the most noble among the cherubim. Others are the Bearers of the Throne or the archangels. In Ismailism, there are seven cherubim, comparable to the Seven Archangels. 🔗 Cherub
