 The Cherubim are the keepers of celestial records.  A Cherub is not a Putto.  A putto is a chubby baby angel.  A Cherub is a giant powerful angel, ranking second under the Seraph.

These ornaments are based on Torah finials.  Finials are the fancy things that go on the ends of curtain robs and scrolls.  Some Torah scrolls have huge finials made entirely of silver.
