Zohar Acharei Mot
Moses was the first one to serve in the holy of holies and experience the presence of the Shechina coming down on the Ark, between the two Cherubim.
“וּבְבֹא מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, לְדַבֵּר אִתּוֹ, וַיִּשְׁמַע אֶת-הַקּוֹל מִדַּבֵּר אֵלָיו מֵעַל הַכַּפֹּרֶת אֲשֶׁר עַל-אֲרֹן הָעֵדֻת, מִבֵּין שְׁנֵי הַכְּרֻבִים; וַיְדַבֵּר, אֵלָיו”
“Now when Moses went into the tent of meeting to speak with Him, he heard the voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat (Kaporet) that was on the ark of the testimony, from between the two cherubim, so He spoke to him.”
The two Cherubim were facing each other and had the aspect of male and female in unity. Male and female are needed in order to create flow of light and draw the Shechina to come and rest over the Kaporet (Top of the Ark) and connect to the priest from between the Cherubim.
