PROCESSIONAL CROSS 206, 11", $100, Ethiopia, SOLD
Although nicely shaped, this cross has some significant discoloration on the front side.
Ethiopia has been a Christian nation since the 4th C. These processional crosses have hollow round bases and were mounted on staffs and carried during processionals or displayed on altars. They are individually cast in Ethiopia from a silver alloy and can stand on their own without bases. The designs on the back sides are similar to those on the front but usually with fewer incised lines.
