The Ethiopian hand cross, also known as an Abyssinian cross or Ethiopian-Eritrean cross, is a symbol of Christianity in Ethiopia and Eritrea[1]. It is typically squared with equal length crossbars[2] and often features intricate latticework[3]. Hand crosses are traditionally cut from a single piece of iron and are known as yaegg masqal[4].
