The New Testament Trinity, depicts the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit distinctly, and although far more familiar from Western models, is actually of Greek origin. Christ is shown as an adult, sitting to the right of his Father.
This type is also called the Paternity icon, and is found from the 11th century onwards, although it did not become widespread in the Greek Orthodox art until after the Fall of Constantinople, under Western influence, when an adult Christ is the norm. The Father is painted as the Ancient of Days, a white-bearded man with a special type of nimbus . The Holy Spirit is shown as a white dove with a halo of the same type as Father has. The dove is placed between the Father and the Son.
The iconography has been crafted by using the artificial aging technique as it was taught to Nectarios Nestos on Mount Athos. It is available via the Mount Athos product exhibition.
