ETHIOPIAN COPTIC CROSS
Origin: ETHIOPIA
Description:

The Ethiopian Coptic Christian church has existed for over 1600 years. Coptic crosses have been produced as a symbol of their faith. Crosses may be of the processional type with a socket at the base so they may be mounted on a staff and carried in church ceremonies or hand-held blessing crosses used by priests in benedictions. Smaller crosses worn as jewellery are also common. Each Ethiopian cross is unique since it is cast in the lost wax technique. They are made from an alloy mix, a combination of silver, copper, iron and other metals in proportions based on the intuition of the maker
