The Trinity is symbolized here by the three angels who visited Abraham. These three angels are depicted from left to right in order of the Creed: God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. They are grouped around a table on which two cups, two radishes and a chalice containing a calf’s head (which the central angel is blessing) are placed.
