Putto

Putti proliferate in popular culture: on buildings, in decorative arts, on greeting cards - a popular purveyor of love. But in Art through the ages, the putto has been a curious little figure, often reflecting philosophy, theology and literature of the time. The putto in Renaissance art was a winged or wingless, male child figure.
