Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

I have resisted the temptation to expose the boys again, they were less than impressed the first time they appeared.  Instead, I found this alternative family of small monsters, not so much cherub-like as impish and the closer you look, the more of them there are:

There is an alternative grungy version on Blipfoto.

    Nice shot, as usual, Robin. Cherubs often fill me with dread.

    this is quite amazing…somehow I find it a bit disturbing. I can only imagine the work that went into this. Thank you for the fine post.

      Many thanks for the generous comment, much appreciated. I agree, it is a little disturbing – I should find out who the lady is and what this represents.

    They’re beautiful, Robin. Where did you find them? 🙂

      Thanks Jo, they are the detail from a terracotta garden wall plaque – never noticed the detail until I was in Photoshop.

    This reminds me of when I collected bookmarks (when I was a kid)… I had a lot of bookmarks with cherubs on. I could sit and watch them for hours. 🙂

    Nice images Robin!

    Interesting images Robin, but cerubs are not my favourite thing!

    That’s one nice interpretation 🙂

    Wow, a really large family of cherubs!
