That's just an angel as described in the Bible. I don't remember where it appears, but I think it's supposed to be a seraphim.
>>
>>154293838
Thanks boyo
>>
>>154293458
ITS PIKACHU
>>
>>154293458
The meaning is Adam smoked a bunch of weed before coming up with designs of the angels
>>
>>154293458

If I'm correct this is the referenced image; I believe it's suppose to be a Seraph.
>>
>>154293458
It's a Seraph. Don't know what the significance in Eva is but there's a lot of biblical imagery thrown around for no reason.

HeH.
>>
>>154293458
who cares? Evangelion has loads to talk about without touching any of that shit.
>>
There was no meaning to it just like the rest of the judeo-christian imagery, it was just to look cool. This doesn't mean the series is shit or has no meaning though, people seem to have an issue separating the two
>>
>>154293458
Generic christian inspired art that really means nothing.
>>
>>154297587
That's actually Jewish, but it's really academic, considering the similarities of the angels of the two.
>>
It's the highest ranking angel a Seraph but with an NGE style angel mask on it, looks radical
>>
>>154293458

That is a seraphim with an angel "mask" instead of it's typical 4 heads, consisting of a lion, ox, hawk and an honest man.
>>
>>154297676
>that's actually Jewish

Before the church started cutting shit out of the old testament it was all a part of Christianity.
>>
>>154293458
I count 12 wings. So Is this not supposed to be a deity based on the wings number?
>>
>>154299147
iirc seraph use 2 wings to cover their legs, 2 to cover their body, and 2 to cover their head, as their radiance would incinerate anyone that looks upon them, and the other 6 are for flying
>>
>>154293458
That's iconography not symbolism. Not that people who complain about symbolism in NGE know the difference.
>>
>>154298552
Its actually in the Bible
Just pointing out that it's originally Jewish
Think before you post
>>
>>154293458
Looks like a Seraph with double the wing count and with an Ophanim eye thing going on.
>>
>>154298496
>>154293458
It's a Cherub, but with only 1 head.
The eyes on the wings are distinctive, and their number of wings isn't specifically 6 like the Seraphim.

Cherubim don't have eyes on their wings. Ophanim have eyes on their entire bodies, though.
>>
>>154299263
Could be an error as the example posted has eyes on it's wings.
>>
>>154299404
that sounds more like its a stylistic choice cus it was cool than trying to match any sort of angel category 100% of the way
>>
>>154294217
Seraphs are angels, it's a show about angels attacking, and a song about a cruel angel... It's not rocket science.
>>
>>154296270
Western works that use biblical imagery are usually using it for more than just aesthetic purposes and that cultural expectation trips people up. Especially in something that invites analysis like Eva.

God-mode Rei has 12 spread out wings, and people indeed got eradicated.
