"Throne of Mercy" Trinity has an unusually circumstantial crucifix,
with details such as the wounded side and the broken stone of
Calvary. Also note the triangle motif in the part containing the
Father's head: a triangle sits at the top of his halo, another in green
lies behind his head, and the actual shape of the image is triangular
at the top.
Also remarkable is the contrast between the Father's divine composure
and the pain visible on the face of Christ.
