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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
