From the Vault: Icons of Ethiopia

 

The Museum of Russian Icons’ mini-exhibit, From the Vault: Icons of Ethiopia, features a mix of Ethiopian icons, silver hand crosses, and artifacts from the Museum’s collection dating from the 19th and 20th century. Many of the icons were purchased from a gallery in Berlin, Germany between 2011 and 2014 including a Mother of God fresco, from the late 18th century that had been removed from the wall and transferred to canvas.

 

From the Vault: Icons of Ethiopia is on exhibit through Aug. 13.
