Large Vintage Lalibela Cross Pendant Necklace from Ethiopia

The unusual large pendant on this necklace is a Lalibela Cross that was handcrafted in Ethiopia during the latter part of the 1900's.

It is a variant of the renowned Coptic Cross, with a design characteristic of the Lalibela region of Ethiopia.

The rounded upper portion represents the 12 apostles, looking like the rays of the sun.

Embedded within the design is a large cross, further reinforcing the Christian faith.

The winged projections on the each side of the lower portion symbolize divinity.

The front and back of this pendant have the same design and details.

This is a sturdily handmade pendant - it does not bend.

It hangs on a new black cord for wearing in the traditional style.

Comes in a gift-box.
