Icon The Holy Trinity - Rublev

Icon The Holy Trinity - Rublev, hand-painted copy of icon

The icon could probably be created around 1408, because it is stylistically similar to Rublev's frescoes in the Dormition Cathedral
(created roughly at the same time)

The Trinity is currently held in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
