The lands of Ethiopia have an ancient and storied history that is explored in this pop-up exhibit. It is the fabled Land of Punt–God’s Land, and the kingdom of the legendary Queen of Sheba. Orthodoxy spread to Ethiopia through the Coptic Church of Egypt, and throughout the centuries they developed their own traditions and a unique style of iconography that uses a bright but limited color palette.
