Originally limited to profane passions in symbolism, the putto came to represent the sacred cherub (plural cherubs) (plural cherubim); and in the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God. A putto representing a cupid is also called an "amorino" (plural - "amorini") or "amoretto" (plural - "amoretti") DOUBTS ? QUESTIONS ? OFFERS ?
