This rare Cross belongs to the group of processional crosses which accompanies each procession of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. It has a hollow shaft for mounting on a wooden handle, so that it can be carried above the heads of people in processions and religous ceremonies. The two lower arms are made for the hanging of the cloth which accompanies the Cross when it is carried by the deacons. The cloth reminds on Christ's dresses. The Cross is handcraftet by the lost-wax method, so that it is unique.
Material: an aloy of silver, copper and nickel.
