Our beautiful reproduction is based on an ornately cast cross (15th16th century) in The Met collection, which was originally positioned at the top of a staff carried by an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian priest. In this example, a central lozenge is framed by a series of three concentric circles. Projecting from the top and sides of the outermost band's perimeter are crosses that suggest buds of vegetation.

The cross is central to devotion and a preeminent cultural icon in the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. It became the object of intense devotion soon after the conversion of the Aksumite Empire to Christianity around 330 A.D. Images of Christ are rare, reflecting Ethiopian Orthodoxy's dual belief in the cross as a sign of the Crucifixion and the Tree of Paradise.
