Oh! I like this, Lisl.
Lisl: I am pleased then, Ray
Il a un air très sérieux.
Lisl: A little fierce, perhaps?
A nice detail, Elisabeth.
Lisl: I am always on the look-out for this sort of thing, Frank. Churches are a happy hunting ground.
I love the blushing cheeks!
Lisl: Nicely made-up, eh?

He/she looks very serious considering the situation in the world ...
Lisl: Ah - but he hovers above the Lord's Prayer, Philine

A face from the past but how old I wonder Lisl?
Lisl: 18th Century, I would guess, Chris
A Cornish cherub! Oh my, Lisl. They sure have changed over time or location, haven't they!
Lisl: Cornish cherubs, and they are everywhere in churches and on tombstones, always look grim to me
This angel has very pink cheeks..... LOL!
Lisl: A little heavy on the rouge?

Lisl: I was delighted to find it
Un cherubin de mauvaise humeur ?
Lisl: He certainly looks sulky, Claudine

Those innocent red cheeks... I love the old look of this, Lisl.
Lisl: Naive art - is't it great?

I like the rosy red cheeks but a bit heavy heavy with the make up?
Lisl: Those Georgians liked their make-up
Not a very cheerful cherub
Lisl: Well, he has been reading the Lord's Prayer below for so many years, he wants to get on with the Gospels!

I am just reading a fantastic book on the Celtic people written by Frank Delaney.
Lisl: Ah! Can you recommend it, please?

Happy chappie, even without apple sauce in his hand
Lisl: He does look rather grim, Louis
It looks to be in good condition, perhaps it has had a spruce up.
Lisl: Yes, I suspect it may have been repainted at some time, but not recently
A very original looking Cherub, Lisl.
Lisl: You should see some of the other Cornish Cherubs, Beverly - they nearly all look fierce or grumpy!
Oh my! What wonderful naive art! I find it wonderful in such a place because it is heartfelt!
Lisl: It was a delight to spot him, Mary
