Abstract: 
In the history of the traditional Ethiopian art one recognizes a process of “transition” of formal elements from the African substrate into the Christian imagery. Through the different stylistic phases and schools a geometric solution recurs as the result of a formal abstraction process, through which the art moves towards the archetypal to express the divine in its powerful distance from reality.
