The first design shows a Krar, a five-or-six stringed bowl-shaped lyre commonly found in Eritrean and Ethiopian traditional music. The Krar is an extension of the musician, where the sounds produced depend on the musician's playing technique. Soft tone or harmonious palpitation, the Krar is a staple in oral storytelling or Azmari music.
The second design shows a woman performing a traditional Ethiopian dance called Eskista. Eskista is characterized by intense shoulder movements, jitting the chest, and thrusting the neck. Eskista has carved a place in contemporary Ethiopian dancing while also remaining appropriate to its traditional music origins.
