Anbessa (Lion) Decals

Anbessa (Lion) Decals


The Anbessa (Lion) Collection is inspired by Ethiopia’s countryside scenery – gojos (traditional Ethiopian homes), acacia trees, and of course, the beautiful beast that is ubiquitous in the country’s history. The Anbessa is a motif frequently seen not only in manuscripts and traditional art, but in tufted rugs, wall decor, and various businesses logos. A small bird/dove often serves as a companion to the lion. Click through to the end of the product photos to see a few of the images that inspired this collection.
