Mother and leader
Through their craftsmanship, the thirdlings left clear traces of their social architecture. In their worldview, all men and women are equal, so how could they differentiate ranks and authorities? They decided that the woman who gives birth to a child is the most suitable to take care of the commune. So every woman who was a mother and cared for her heir was the leader. The child in her arms was the ultimate symbol of authority within the thirdlings.
