Actually, there are six-winged seraphims in the Book of Isaiah, and they are angels. (I can look it up if you want.) But that's not why I'm here. ;c)
I could put many meanings to this, and let my imagination run wild. Jesus or God is often referred to as The Lion of Judah a.k.a. Aslan in Chronicles of Narnia. This could be Jesus announcing his arrival again, or trumpeting the arrival of God in all His glory. A good drawing too! Catriona E J Millican
replies: "My understanding was that seraphim and angels were two different things - angels were the people who came to earth with messages and were often mistaken for human beings, but the seraphim etc. were some other order of being.Anywahy, thanks for the thoughtful and imaginative comment. I took to drawing angels as lions a little while ago, largely because I was not happy with my ability to draw human faces (though that has got better lately), and also because I think it gives them a look of power and royalty that is quite cool. There are all kinds of bits and pieces of symbolism there, as you say."

Just fabulous! Speaks of all the good qualities of angels, men and lions! It also reminds me of the splendor that some of my departed lion friends may have taken on, in the presence of 'The Great Lion'! Catriona E J Millican

Wonderful piece with a great concept! Makes me want to break out the ol’ trumpet (if I had one.).
