This exquisite icon is created from a block of solid woods, and it weighs 2.8lb. It is exceptionally well done, beautifully painted, with exciting themes, and aesthetically pleasing. It has two wooden panels on each side that opens to reveal a colorful scene from the Bible. The outside of the icon is covered with canvas fabric and painted with decorative patterns.
The middle part that binds the two panels are made of leather. On one of the panels, Jesus is shown carrying the cross as soldiers are leading him to the crucifixion and a large crowd following behind him. On the other side of the panel, it seems (my interpretation) Jesus Christ has come to judge the living and the dead.
Note: the icon has never been used before. However, it was stored in an art gallery for several years. There are some damages on the outside of the cover. Please look at the last pictureCondition:

Welcome to koolDecor, your number one source for traditional Ethiopian home decorations and fashion accessories.
Mekdes Hagos, the founder and owner of koolDecor, began her professional life in the interior architecture field and worked for many years in the business. On a trip to Ethiopia in 2007, she met a textile weaver who introduced her to the woven fabrics of the country. Mekdes fell in love with the materials and wanted to incorporate the designs in the creation of something new. A few years later, through a partnership with Ethiopian textile weavers, koolDecor was established. Since then, Mekdes has collaborated with a wide range of artisans.
