The Love Nest, containing models of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, is a traditional wedding gift. Legend tells of the love affair between the wisest of kings and most beautiful queen. According to Ethiopian tradition, the two had a son, Menelik, who became emperor of Ethiopia. The box also has a practical purpose in preserving modesty between the married couple. When the wife is feeling amorous, she leaves the box open to indicate her desire to her husband.
