RE: Kaitlyn
I’m glad you pointed out other ways their showed their prowess– through the building of complicated artwork or structures. Such a feat would surely ensure their place of power from the perspective of the people, since we want to believe our rulers powerful (leadership qualities). Like you said, the magnitude of the structures would strike awe in those beneath the rulers and those that are in the same social standing as well. To gain respect of other rulers must have been important.
