Russian Icon - The Old Testament Trinity (Hospitality of Abraham)

The Old Testament Trinity icon depicts the story of three angels who visited Abraham (Genesis 18:1–8), but the painting is full of symbolism and is generally interpreted as an icon of the Holy Christian Trinity, "one God in three persons" – the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. The Three Messengers are depicted in the center as winged angels sitting around a hospitable table being served by Abraham and Sarah pictured on the left. On the background the Abraham’s house is pictured and the Oak of Mamre.
