Try thinking outside of the box.
Vogel - Bird.
What does a bird do - it flies - the word flying would not appear as such in
ancient Egypt but represented as a bird - a bird soars up into the sky,
"towards the Sun".
Sonnen - The Sun - worshipped as it gave live & death in many ways and was
not touchable by man - but a bird could "touch/reach" the Sun.
Barke - skiff/barque - boat - what type of boat - reed or wood - what ever
it was represented as.
I think the meaning of "Vogelsonnenbarke" should be "The Sun Boat" - taking
"Vogel" literarily as meaning "flying or flew" rather than "Bird" and assume
it flies like a bird into the Sun.
Now screw your thinking cap on.

Dear list members,
I wonder if there is anybody who could help me with the translation of
the term "Vogelsonnenbarke" which I need for a publication. I have read
the translation "bird-sun boat" but wondered if there is a more precise
translation used. Any help much appreciated.
