Ethiopian Wooden Cross

Year: 1875
Decade: 1870s
Century: 19th (1801-1900)

A large Ethiopian wooden cross. The head has a image of the crucified Christ wearing an ecclesiastical hat. The inscriptions around figure of Christ say “Jesus of Nazareth” and the other words seem to be a Ethiopian version of the Rotas Sator.
