Note: In Ethiopian culture, parchment scrolls upon which various taslismanic images and texts, often prayers, are inscribed, generally by clerics in complex rituals. Their purpose is in healing ceremonies. Sick people focus on the scroll, and enter into a healing trance by which they are cured; they may wear the scrolls for a time. The images that appear on the scrolls range from Jewish, Christian, and Islamic religious symbols, the story of King Solomon, lions, birds, and abstract talismanic patterns to the most frequently depicted symbols, large, colorfully-rendered eyes.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... In de Ethiopische cultuur, perkamenten rollen waarop diverse als talisman bedoelde afbeeldingen en teksten, veelal gebeden, worden geïnscribeerd, meestal door geestelijken tijdens complexe rituelen. De rollen zijn bedoeld voor gebruik bij genezingsceremonieën. Door zich op de rol te concentreren komen zieken in een genezingstrance die hen van hun ziekte moet verlossen; soms dragen ze de rollen ook een tijdje. De afbeeldingen op de rollen kunnen religieuze symbolen van joodse, christelijke of islamitische oorsprong zijn, of betrekking hebben op het verhaal van koning Salomon, maar afbeeldingen van leeuwen, vogels of abstracte talismanpatronen worden ook aangetroffen; het vaakst afgebeeld echter worden grote, kleurig uitgevoerde ogen.
