Heaven

    In this painting of the Blessed Trinity by Caro, the Father and the Son are seated side by side in the clouds and the Holy Ghost hovers in the air above them.


    God the Father is seated on the right side of the painting. He is depicted as an old man with white hair and a beard. He wears a blue robe and a yellow cloak. He holds a gold scepter in His left hand while raising the fingers of His right hand.


    God the Son is seated on the left side of the painting. He has light brown hair and a beard. He wears a white cloth and a red cloak, which are wrapped around His waist. God the Son holds a cross with His right arm. He extends His left hand. 


    The Holy Ghost is depicted as a dove. The blue sky behind Him is mostly covered with white clouds and the faint outlines of cherubs’ heads.


    Beneath the Father and the Son, cherubs hold an opaque globe so that the top of the globe just below the extended hands of the Divinity. Other angels hold the cloaks of the Father and the Son.
