Armenia:

Do you know what a khachar is?

A khachkar, also known as an Armenian cross-stone is a carved, memorial stele bearing a cross, and often with additional motifs such as rosettes, interlaces, and botanical motifs.
 
Khachkars are characteristic of Medieval Christian Armenian art.
 
Armenian art of Khachkars is transmitted from generation to generation and continuously recreated to satisfy the artist’s creativity.
 
Wherever you go, thousands of khachkars pervade the conscience of the world’s first Christian nation, providing a rare glimpse into the art of spiritual expression.
 
Since 2010, khachkars, their symbolism and craftsmanship are inscribed in the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
