He drove QAT mad. He tried to imitate everything QAT did and always made a hash of it. QAT’s wooden dolls (which he managed to hide from MARAWA for three days) came to life. MARAWA didn’t know where to hide his own wooden doll attempts so he buried them, forgot about them for six days and the termites had terminated them. This is why the dead are buried.
