A putto (Italian "putto" , plural - "putti") is a figure in a work of art depicted as a chubby male child, usually naked and sometimes winged. Originally limited to profane passions in symbolism, the putto came to represent the sacred cherub (plural cherubs) (plural cherubim); and in the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God. A putto representing a cupid is also called an "amorino" (plural - "amorini") or "amoretto" (plural - "amoretti").
