An icon of the Ethiopian martyrs

Shortly after the 21 Copts were martyred by the Islamic State, an icon was written commemorating their memory. Now a similar icon has been written commemorating the 30 Ethiopian Christians also martyred by the Islamic State:
We may not yet know the names of the Ethiopian martyrs, but we have an image for their devotion.

Here is the icon of the Copts:

And here the icon of the Ethiopians:

May they intercede for us, that following their example, we, too, may persevere to the end.
