The icon Trinity

The main form of the composition of the icon of the Trinity is a circle. All three figures are subject to this circle. The circle unites them. This creates a special state of contemplation in which we constantly hear the echoes of the melody of the circle. These rhythms are inherent in everything - lines, shapes, colors. The inner life of the image is silence, which is transmitted to the viewer, filling it with the inner life of the icon.
