Axum Ethiopian Cross
Designer: Boho Gal Jewelry
Ethiopian crosses are almost invariably made from elaborate lattice work. Geometric patterns are common in Ethiopian art and there is order and meaning in the intertwined lattice style. This represents everlasting life and also relates to the nature of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
Ever since the conversion of Ethiopia as a country to Christianity (thought to be as far back as the 1st century AD) the presence of the cross seems almost universal. In Ethiopia, cross symbols are not only in churches and places of worship but also in everyday life.
Truly some of the most beautiful crosses ever seen.
