The Cherub

The Cherub (Priyanka)

The Cherub (Priyanka)

Every time I look at this picture I think angel, cherub because of Priyanka’s angelic smile and rounded face. I can imagine her in a painting sitting on a cloud with little wings looking beatific. In this picture with her emerging smile she looks more angelic than ever.

A quick search for Cherub on google images shows almost all curly haired, blond hair, European looking children. It’s the ultimate commentary on the wickedness that comes with some religions that only white people are depicted in religious iconography.

Priyanka could be the poster child, the poster cherub for the larger percentage of the world that is made up of people of color.
