God commands the Israelites not to make carved images (Exodus 20:4), but also commands the Israelites to carve images of cherubim on the Ark (Exodus 25). This would appear to be contradictory. However if you read the context of the command, it seems that God is not forbidding images of any sort but forbidding images that are worshipped. “You shall not bow down to them or serve them” (Exodus 20:5).
