Here's a short article from Southworld called "The Variety of Ethiopian Crosses."  It's a very brief review, but worth reading if you want to gain a basic understanding of the three forms of Ethiopian crosses.  One can also read a related article, "Ethiopia. The cross: symbol of a country", which discusses the importance of the cross to Ethiopian history and some historical cross variations and their symbolic associations/origins.
