This object synthesizes the full history of the Matagi community:

This object synthesizes the full history of the Matagi community. The format chosen for this publication is the leporello, and our readers will find two covers and three different ways of reading it.

When unfolding accordion book in the western reading direction, narrative based solely on images is revealed. If we choose to start from that same cover but to the left, the original Matagi legend appears.

The second cover introduces a historical fictional text about the evolution of these traditional hunters in Japan, using the memories of the mountain goddess, Yama-no-Kami as the guiding thread.
