$30

An elegant 3 inch brass Ethiopian Coptic Cross, handmade in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


--

Nharo traveled to Ethiopia in March 2017 and we were able to acquire a fine collection of crosses.

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.

Each brass cross comes with a simple black cord. Each cross is handmade so the cross you receive will be similar to the one in the photo but not exactly the same.

Average Height:  7.5 cm  (3 inch)

Average Weight:   30 grams (1 oz)

We are located in Toronto's west end at 124 Portland St, Etobicoke.
