The Ethiopic Art Porcelain Ornament
The vibrant Ethiopic image displayed on this flower-shaped ornament is inspired by an artifact in our Museum Collections. "The Life and Miracles of the Virgin Mary," written in Ge’ez (an ancient South Semitic language), combines traditional miracle stories about Mary, the mother of Jesus, with an account of her life.
Artistic Style & Iconography
The artistic style is typically Ethiopian, and the lively color palette is dominated by yellow, green, and red (the colors of the Ethiopian flag to this day). The iconography is modern, however—in some depictions, the soldiers in Herod’s army are carrying rifles—revealing the book’s nineteenth-century origin.
Size & Weight
This ornament measures 4" x 4". It weighs 6 ounces.
