In recent years, Ethiopia’s skyline has experience significant change with some of the largest growth among cities in African countries. Despite the building, the inauguration of a city rail system, and a capital-driven economic agenda, the presence of meaningful historical icons punctuates communities and the burgeoning skyline. In this photo we see the Lion of Judah, which is a symbol that has imbued Ethiopian symbols, including representing the monarchical past, the pre-Derg flag, currency, and the connection to the Rastafari movement. The Lion of Judah is foremost a religious symbol that spans religious traditions. In this photo of contrasts, the Lion of Judah looks on at one of the largest new financial building in Addis Ababa.
