I found two interesting videos showing Ethiopian icons:

The first one is entirely of icons of the Mother of God:

The second shows other images, including some illuminated manuscripts:

Thank you Salpy!  I am always moved by your respect for our EOTC and your desire to share the Light of Ethiopian Orthodoxy with others. Of course, we are of the same Faith, so it makes perfect sense. But I am very grateful to you. Smiley

I really like this video. It has a very solemn feel to it.

A very good video really.

On this video, from 1:12min. onwards, in almost all of the icons you see the baby Jesus lifting His arm and showing his two fingers just like the V sign. This is typical of Ethiopian icons of the BVM and Her Son and is indicative of His two nativities.
