Ethiopia has been a Christian nation since the 4th century. The unique cross style of the region is specific to the Coptic subset of the Christian faith. The hollowed base could be either fitted over a staff for processionals or displayed at an altar in the church. Church artisans followed the initial copper casting process by painstakingly attaching silver plating.
