Orthodox Technologies: Folding Cross

Hi-Tech Koukoulions captured on video.

Wonderful moment was captured during Patriarch of Moscow and all the Rus' Cyrils visit to Warsaw: when the Patriarch was getting on his car, one of his bodyguards folded the golden cross on Cyrils cap (actually called Koukoulion) with a perfectly trained motion.

His Holiness, the Patriarch of Kyiv and All Rus - Ukraine Filaretthe is noticed using the same construction. Probably, every Koukoulion has an inbuilt folding golden cross: using posh Mercedeses urges top Orthodox officials modernize hundreds-year-old traditions.
