This motif has been drawn from the Coptic cross, a symbol of orthodox Christianity used a lot in decoration throughout Kenya and Ethiopia. Although an ancient motif, the people of this area have made their own art and culture surrounding it and it has evolved into a symbol that continues to build their identity.
