The title of this ritualistic and mystical work means the bird crane and refers to a constellation with the same name. The constellation Grusglitters in the skies of the southern hemisphere. In ancient Egypt, the crane was a symbol of celestial observation. If one looks up into the sky on a starry night, it’s easy to understand why those ancient stargazers connected so many mythological stories to the constellations. TR, 2008
