Inspired by Silolona's spirit, he conceived a bold and daring plan to build a boat capable of sailing towards the sun. When the boat was launched Atuf's pure and powerful voice called forth the spirit of his beloved wife, "come my beloved, come join with me on my journey to the sun." Atuf then named his magnificent boat Silolona.

After a long and arduous voyage under the blazing heat of the monstrous sun Atuf once again called fourth the spirit of Silolona. With renewed strength Atuf then hurled his magical spear shattering the sun and creating all the stars and constellations.
