「NAWA LINK」in Tottori
UNIFICATIN THROUGH MYTHOLOGY
UNIFICATIN THROUGH MYTHOLOGY, JAPAN The Chamber of Commerce of Yonago-Totori region invited Mariyo Yagi to help them unify the 12 cities of their area. Historically, these cities were part of the same unified community, and the more recent governmental divisions into individual cities had created an environment of competitiveness among neighbors. Together with Mariyo Yagi's guidance, the people of the 12 cities joined together to create a Nawa-column made of 25,000 worn T-shirts. Entitled "Kunibiki", (10m high x 2m diameter), named after a story from the ancient Izumo mythology which they shared,"Kunibiki" became a contemporary symbol of their community bonds, past and present.
