A quotient of the Lorenz dynamical system is constructed. This "proto-Lorenz" system has the Lorenz system as a double covering, and the double covering explains the two-eared nature of the strange attractor for the Lorenz system. Arbitrary coverings of the proto-Lorenz system are possible, leading to n-eared strange attractors.
