Ethiopian Icons

I've just recently become aware of the whole world of Ethiopian painting. I don't really have much to say about it, because I don't really know anything about it yet except that I find it beautiful. So I'll just show you some examples of Ethiopian Christian icons.

St George slaying the dragon:

The flight to Egypt:

Another St George. Apparently George is very popular in Ethiopia:

Madonna and child. I don't know who the figures in the background are. Magi?
