The figures on show in the city library in Kringlan are called "gablers". Early in the last century fishermen often had to wait to see if the weather was good enough for fishing. There wasn't much shelter by the harbor so they loitered about under the gables of the fish processing factories. Those men were sometimes called "gablers" in jest.
