Iconography : The study of those aspects of a work of art that pertain exclusively to its subject, and the ways in which that subject is represented. Iconography of the Trinity : • God the Father: elderly bearded man with blue cloak over reddish shirt. • The Son (Jesus Christ): shown semi-nude and crucified on a cross. • The Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost): appears in the form of a dove. Note : The holiness or sanctity of the figures is denoted by a halo, usually a gold disk.
