The figure depicted here is the fish-maker whom Qiviuq meets at the edge of a large body of water that he wishes to cross. The fish-maker chops wood and the chips fall into the water to become fish. He creates a giant fish for Qiviuq, that Qiviuq rides upon to cross the water.” Art & Expression of the Netsilik, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Darlene Coward Wight, page 154
