Dear Antonio J. Domenech,
My 1999 book _Spirit Of The Mountains: Korea's San-shin
and Traditions of Mountain-Worship_ contains a fairly
long discussion of female Mountain-Spirit (with several
photos of their icons) and the general issue of the
genders of Mountain-Spirits, in Chapter II.
And then I posted a three page "update" report on
Korea's most prominent female Mountain-Spirit, kind of
a national Matriarch-deity, the Cheonhwang-bong seongmo-
halmae sanshin [Heavenly-King Peak Holy-Matriarch
mountain-spirit], on three pages starting at:
Good Luck with your reasearch/writing...
