For this adaptation of Trinity, artist Kumari Nahappan explores the concepts of numbers and states of being as they relate to geometry through a series of triangles. She created a set of three equilateral triangles and three broken triangles made up of different angles. Here, the symbol of the broken triangle is abstract depending on its position in the work. The original artwork, Trinity, is a painting inspired by sacred geometry, a concept that is present in many religions.
