Hand Carved Ethiopian Silver Cross

$563

About

An antique Ethiopian cross, hand carved in silver, circa 1950. These silver or brass crosses are symbols of Christianity in Ethiopia and Eritrea. Their elaborate design distinguishes them from similar European crosses. Ethiopian crosses are almost always made from elaborate latticework, the intertwined lattice representing eternal life. No two crosses are exactly identical in style. Measures: 23" H x 9" W, mounted on a 4" x 4" base stand.
