Three Persons, One God

A painting of the Most Blessed Trinity, here shown as three identical Christ figures seated side by side. On the foreground are shown the figures of Saint Joseph (bottom left) and Saint Ignatius (bottom right). A definite product of the Cuzco School-- though as to the name of the painter, that has already been lost to time. This type of depiction of the Trinity was banned in Europe following the Reformation; however, it found new life in a Latin America for which the Reformation never happened, and art was sacred art was free to pursue its own, vastly imaginative course.
