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...
David Mason
