Triptych

Typically a triptych is a multi-panel work comprising of a form which is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together and folded. The middle panel is typically the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, although there are triptyches of equal-sized panels. The triptych form arises from early Christian art, and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards
