The Bible recounts that Abraham and Sarah were visited
by 3 strangers (messengers of God) who told them to expect
a baby and a wonderful heritage despite their advanced
age. Abraham and Sarah welcomed them with a meal served
under the oak trees.
In this traditional icon, the Holy Trinity is depicted
symbolically as these three messenger angels, in harmonious
and thoughtful discussion, seated outdoors under an oak
tree, around a table with bread and wine. The inscription
around the edges was selected to emphazie the interdependence
of all creation, modeled on the mutual relationship of
the Holy Trinity.
