  • Paying homage to Andrei Rublev's 15th century work, this icon is a re-interpretation of the Troitsa, or Trinity. Rublev's icon is one of the most distinguishable paintings in Russian art due to its rich symbolism. The image loosely depicts a story from the Book of Genesis regarding the hospitality of Abraham and Sarah. In the passage, Abraham sees three men (who are later revealed to be angels standing by the Oak of Marme and offers them food and drink. However, the icon is also a representation of the Trinity, with each angel depicting one facet of the tripartite God.
