Holy crap. I just located a copy of an article by Anne Ross called "Esus Et Les Trios <<Grues>>" in Études Celtique 1960. . . Yes, that's "Esus and the Three Cranes." Not only does it contain a photo of the other side of the Esus relief at Trier, but it also includes another set of reliefs and pieces that she thinks are relevant.
Of course, I will have to translate the French before I can figure out what the hell she's talking about, but holy crap. . .
And I was just trying (and failing) to locate a suggested article from Ceisiwr Serith when I stumbled on this!

Have you seen "The Romance of Astrea and Celadon"? I picked it up a couple months ago from our local library with the feeling it would be pretty bad. But hey, fifth century Gaulish druids! I actually enjoyed it, partially for the silliness factor. Some interesting "theories" about Gaulish vs Roman religion. Esus gets a shout out, albeit as an "aspect" of Teutates, and I thought of you Cranes. Also you should so find an MP3 of Omnia's song "Teutates" or you know support them by buying the album, it's on 'Pagan Folk'. Anywho exciting stuff.

interesting, have fun with the translation.
Ooo! I want to know the results! and see the pictures!
My French is pretty good if you need help. I'm much better at reading and writing than speaking...but I made it through Paris ok without a language book!
Aw.. I knew all the words but one, and for a moment hoped it was about Esus, emerging from a maze of twisty tunnels, all alike, only to be eaten by a grue. That would be some mythological synchronicity, right there.
This gets posted to the site after you translate it, right?
I have a friend (read: ex-girlfriend who is still a good friend) who used to live in France and is fluent, if you get stuck on something. :)
