The Iconographic Tradition Of The Holy Trinity

In the podcast Speaking the truth in Love Ft. Thomas Hopko explains the two ways the Holy Trinity are depicted in icons.

He also talks about what happened latter in time in how it was westernized, and what the Orthodox did in responce. It's a bit complex, historically, the Father and Holy Spirit can not be depicted in icons because they never became "incarnate". So only the "Son" is dipicted, but according to this podcast. It seems a bit more complex than that.
