Part of Assouline’s special series, the Legends Collection, each hardcover tome is housed in its own elegant slipcase. These titles are the authority on their subjects, inspired by mythic eras, artists, and high society. Fit for royalty, these books are inspired by tastemakers across the centuries, and are essential to the culturally inclined influencers of today.
Across the sands of time, Ethiopia has embodied fantasy and intrigue. The richly storied country has been a supporter of Christianity for the Crusaders in the Middle Ages, a symbol of resistance to European colonization in the late 19th century, and, most recently, a recipient of aid due to its extreme poverty. Ethiopian Highlands offers a striking look into this world of contrasts. These vibrant, intimate images captured by Lizy Manola, whose Greek nationality connects her implicitly to Ethiopia’s past, bring us to the very heart of the Christian culture of its Highlands. Seventy of Manola’s photos were collected for an exhibition entitled Ethiopia, Spiritual Imprints. These are images of Ethiopian people, places, and objects considered holy: churches in the Lalibela and Tigray regions, monasteries and monks of Lake Tana, and many more. The exhibition began in August 2014 at the cina dell’Arte Spirituale in Venice, Italy, and later continued at the Byzantine Christian Museum in Athens, Greece, where it was on display until June 2015.
