The Holy Trinity (Old Testament Trinity), Orthodox Serigraph Icon in Rublev style.

SIZE: 8 1/4" x 6 3/4"
Made In Russia.

On one level this picture shows three angels seated under Abraham's tree, but on another it is a visual expression of what the Trinity means, what is the nature of God, and how we approach him. Reading the picture from left to right, we see the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are seated at a round table.

This icon tells the mysterious story where Abraham receives three visitors as he camps by the oak of Mamre. He serves them a meal. As the conversation progresses he seems to be talking straight to God, as if these "angels" were in some way a metaphor for the three persons of the Trinity. In Rublev's representation of the scene, the three gold-winged figures are seated around a white table on which a golden, chalice-like bowl contains a roasted lamb. All of the figures have the same face.In the background of the picture, an angel representing God the Father as the "Creator" is seated in front of a house which can be seen at the top left. The central angel seated in front of a tree represents Christ (who was "suspended" on a tree-the Cross) and is pointing to the chalice-like bowel on the table prefiguring the altar with the Eurcharist.The third angel pictured in front of a rocky hill represents the Holy Spirit who the guardian and "preserve" of the environment and who is with us today.

Translation at the bottom of this icon:
"O most-holy Trinity: have mercy on us. O Lord: cleanse us from our sins. O Master: pardon our transgressions. O Holy One: visit and heal our infirmities, for Thy name's sake."
