The Triptych: Void, Spacetime & Beyond
The origin of the word Triptych is Greek, meaning three plates. Triptych's definition today is a set of three panels. Usually hinged to the central panel are two smaller winged panels, that enclose the altarpiece by folding to protect it. Historically, the triptych design was intended to be transported and displayed, traditionally as an altarpiece in religious settings or private devotion.
