This intricate Ethiopian bronze cross exemplifies a style unique to the region's Coptic subset of the Christian faith. The exquisitely detailed perforated form is connected by a long etched handle, used primarily by priests. Integral to religious ceremonies and rituals, the Coptic cross signifies protection and blessings upon the congregation. The cross is created by a copper casting process which is then painstakingly coated in silver plating. Mounted on a custom steel stand, this Coptic cross becomes a fantastic sculptural object.
