Any Art Experts Out There?

Props and my enduring gratitude to anyone who can identify the artist and/or location (the physical location, not the world wide web location) of the painting below. Thanks!

If I were you, I'd run it by someone in the BC art history department.

Or, if you have the original, go asap to the next "Antiques Roadshow."

between God the Creator and God Incarnate so that when God is shown in the Creation stories, he looks just like Jesus in the Redemption episodes, the only difference being that he is often given a triangular halo as against Jesus' triple-rayed halo which symbolises the cross as well as the Trinity. God appears like this in the frescoes at San Gimigniano.
From wiki comment:
There is another picture of the Trinity somewhere... I think a Jesuit statement...which shows the triune God as three identical Jesus-persons all enthroned side-by-side. Rather intimidating...I'd hate to get up there and have the three of them arguing over where to send me. I wonder if there's a wikipage devoted to depictions of God.
