Cute baby angels with chubby cheeks and little wings who use bows and arrows to cause people to fall in love may be romantic , but they are no way related to Biblical angels. Known as either cherubs or cupids, these characters are popular in art especially around Valentine's Day. Just as falling in love can be confusing, so is the history of how cherubs and cupids came to be confused with Biblical angels. It is pretty clear where the association with love comes from. For that, you can turn to ancient Roman mythology. Cupid was the son of Venus , the Roman goddess of love, and was often depicted in art as a young man with a bow, ready to shoot arrows at people to cause them to fall in love with others.
