Gonder, Ethiopia

The structure of Kuskwam Mariam church during reconstruction reveals the circular outer wall and circular holy place which was often decorated in bright paintings. At the centre is the square holy of holies, accessible only by priests and housing the Ark of the Covenant (or Tabot), modelled on Old Testament descriptions of the Tabernacle and Temple.
