This 50c stamp (Sc #208) of Bolivia is from a set of eight issued in 1931 to mark the centenary of the country's independence. Each of the two larger, high values of this set shows a portrait of a revolutionary leader flanked by an angel, left and right.

Venezuelan independence leader Gen. Antonio Jose de Sucre (1795-1830) is depicted on this stamp. He was victorious in several important battles and served as Bolivia's 2nd president, and also as Peru's 4th president. His death was the result of an assassination.

I read an article (in Japanese) says Seraph has blue wings and Cherub has red wings - how about in this case of monochrome illustration? There are 7 beautiful angels on the hem of the cloak.

Hi Tomoko,
Cherubim have 4 wings, (helps God)
Seraphim has six wings. (Praises God)

I'd say you have Cherubs.

Oh, hi Rod!

Thank you!
I added the close up image.

And 1974 Vatican City stamp shows a Seraph, in that case.

Beautiful Assyrian angel... yes, 4 wings!

This being below, has 6 wings and 3 heads, and the bird on the bottom has 6 wings! Maybe in this case, they are not angels but gods?

Consider Tomoko,
these images are individual's interpretations.
One of my favourite Historians (Waldemar Januszczak )
in his DVD "The Dark Ages, the Age of Light""
He shows one of the very first images of "Jesus"
From memory, it was a little chubby boy with curly hair.

Modern convention has him rather differently.

Yes, I got that Rod - because of lack of my knowledge in the department of angels, I was puzzled by those winged beings - then started to read. Now I am confident to find out which little chubby boy with curly hair is an angel and which similar figure is a cupid. For example... this one below is an angel! (and it says in the SG catalogue)

Italy
29 November 1981 / Stamp Day: Caduceus, chest, envelopes and Cherub blowing posthorn / design & engrave: L. Vangelli



I will check "The Dark Ages, the Age of Light", Rod - as I am also a fan of Waldemar Januszczak. By the way, this image below is another expression of Jesus in a form of Cherub (red 6 wings), painted by Giotto and hang in the Louvre, Paris. An example of early Renaissance interpretation.
