This cross pendant is fashioned in a traditional Ethiopian motif. First associated with King Solomon of Ancient Israel, the Lion of Judah figures prominently in the culture of Ethiopia and the motif has been associated with both Imperial Ethiopia and the Rastafari movement. In Christianity, the Lion of Judah is considered a reference to Jesus who is said to be from the house of Solomon. This authentic Ethiopian cross measures approximately 65mm in length and 46mm in diameter. Truly a unique find!
