Entry into Jerusalem, Ethiopian Style

I have not been able to track down the artist behind this image of “Our Lord’s Entry into Jerusalem” but I’m led to believe it originates from Ethiopia.

It is worth noting that Christianity in Ethiopia dates back to the first century, where it thrived for centuries, often in isolation from Europe. The story of the conversion of an Ethiopian official even made it into the New Testament, in the Acts of the Apostles. Christianity in Africa has very ancient roots.
