An interpretation from the image
of archangel cherub Auriel.
His name means: "God is my light".
As described in the work of Dionysius the Areopagite.
Auriel is a Cherub, with 4 wings, 4 heads [a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle].
He holds the sun as he is in charge of taking care of the order of cosmos, constellations and celestial bodies.
