Crime and punishment
They say that a dreamy girl once broke the harsh prohibition and looked up from the land that she had to please along with other members of the community. The girl looked up, saw the Sky and the birds, they have no notion of worry or labour, and thought (thus breaking another taboo), „why I am not a bird, why don’t I fly?” As punishment for such unheard-of audacity, the girl was made to wear a steel collar as if to say, look at your sky until death itself. She did not have to wait long.
