Charming Spirit-Mountain Hermitage
Andong City, North Gyeongsang Province
These opening shots are by my friend the photographer Robert Koehler
This Hermitage just 100m east of Bongjeong-sa is justifiably famous for its Joseon-dynasty
architecture, including courtyard-garden, pavilion-entranceway, residences and shrines --
all superbly-designed, charming and comfortable -- everybody's favorite!

the Sanshin painting is modern, simple but colorful
and lively, and "crowded" in the Shamanic style
