St George Gallery Axum

Top choice arts & crafts in Aksum

One of the best shops in northern Ethiopia, St George has that rare combination of simple tourist items and fine pieces of art and antiques, although the quality tends towards the latter. Religious paintings (including triptych and on goat skin), silver crosses and jewellery make up the bulk of the collection.

It's a real Aladdin's Cave and Berhane, the owner, is knowledgeable and pressure-free.
