The Hospitality of Abraham. Α biblical theme symbolizing the Holy Trinity. The icon is dated in the 15th c. The figures are noble and refined. The angels have been rendered with Hellenistic grace, and the balanced, uncluttered composition is replete with its doctrinal content. The stylistic features suggest that this icon that found in Zakynthos, is the product of early Cretan painters (early 15th c.), clearly marked by Palaiologan models.
