    Ethiopian crosses, Abyssinian crosses, or Ethiopian-Eritrean crosses are a grouping of Christian cross variants that are symbols of Christianity in Ethiopia, Eritrea, and among Ethiopians and Eritreans. Their elaborate, stylized design is markedly distinct from other Christian cross variants. Ethiopian crosses are almost always made from elaborate latticework, the intertwined lattice represents everlasting life.

    No two crosses are exactly identical in style. The artisans who make them are allowed the freedom to exercise a measure of individual taste and creativity in their choice of shape and pattern.
