CROSSES AT ETHIOPIA'S TIMKAT FESTIVAL
The Timkat Festival of the Coptic Orthodox Church will be held on January 19, 2013 in the city of Gondar, Ethiopia in the African Rift Valley. The religious festival is distinguised by priests and other believers parading large, ornate, finely wrought gold Coptic crosses which have become highly collectible worldwide. In the photo above, the mother and daughter wear their Coptic faith jewelry: silver personal crosses which are equally collectible.
