Why does a centaur have an angel on its back? Apart from the fact that they are mythological beings from totally different eras and traditions, I can’t help but wonder if the divine protection of angels stretches out to these non-Christian half-men. photo of this weeks photo of the week Still, they seem at ease together. The centaur leans back as if to catch something the angel, a chubby little cherub, is saying. Maybe they’re discussing which one of them is more real, or sharing a private joke about the gullibility of mankind. “Really, a burning bush?” The centaur will guffaw, and the cherub will reply that it was a sudden flash of inspiration. Then they will both nod their heads dismissively. Or maybe the centaur will explain that indeed the expression hung like a horse applies to centaurs also, and to him in particular. But the cherub will have none of that. “Look,” he’ll say, “I wouldn’t exactly call that being hung like a horse” while looking under the centaur’s rump. “He just got it wrong, okay?” the centaur will say peevishly. “And besides, which one of us has got the tiny penis, baby balls?” “He just got it wrong, okay?” the cherub will reply. Then they’ll both laugh.
