Bird depictions are very present in the Armenian arts and culture; from 'Trtchnakir' (bird scripts) to ceramics, architectural stone-carvings or even folktales.
'GROUNG' ("gueh-roong") or KRUNK : CRANE in Armenian - have a special significance in the Armenian culture, associated with migration and homesickness. Many traditional Armenian folk songs are dedicated to cranes, asking them to come back - bringing some news from their homes and loved ones.
According to popular belief, they are also bearers of good fortune.
