Silver Coptic Hand Cross S Ethiopia


A silver processional Coptic cross with intricate designs. The cross is one of the most recognizable symbols across the world, and this particular one is evidence of Christianity in Ethiopia. As a central religious motif, the cross was made as a single piece or was associated with other visual arts.

Individual crosses such as this are cast or carved in different styles, designs, and sizes. These are hand-cut from various metals: silver, iron, gold, and brass, or cast using the lost wax method. Designs are as varied as the regions, and crosses are generally named after towns or provinces where they are made. The use of these crosses is essentially religious. Large crosses such as this were used in church processions by priests during religious ceremonies. They were also held by pilgrims during processions.

This cross is made out of a silver metal alloy.
