ETHIOPIAN
SCROLL 6
71" long x 4.5" wide
$1000

The scroll consists of three panels laced together with three pictures in color.

Ethiopia has been a Christian nation since the 4th century. These Coptic gospel texts are handwritten and illustrated on vellum, a fine parchment made from calfskin, lambskin, or kidskin.

Although age is impossible to establish definitively, we believe this scroll dates from the 19th or early 20th century.
