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.
