1872 Chocolate Cherub

I’m having fun creating some digital Christmas collages, and thought I’d share this one first, since it’s the least typical Christmas. The photo was taken in 1872 by the famous photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, and is titled “I wait”. I think the darling cherub looks like she waits for more chocolate:
