Seraphim, Victor Vasnetsov (1885-96), Moscow, Russia. A passage in the Book of Isaiah (6.1-8) used the term to describe fiery six-winged beings that fly around God's throne: "I saw the Lord sitting on a throne...Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. And one called to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.’"
