Ethiopian crosses are symbols of Christianity in Ethiopia. Their elaborate, stylized design is markedly distinct from the similar European Christian crosses. Ethiopian crosses are almost always made from elaborate lattice work, the intertwined lattice represents everlasting life. Each cross looks different, and artisans can take liberty when choosing shapes and patterns.
