"The Mistress of the Copper Mountain" is an amazing fairytale from P. Bazhov's "The Malachite Casket." The Mistress is the keeper of all precious metals and gems, who sometimes appears before people in the form of a beautiful woman, or in the form of a little lizard with a crown. The roots of this character probably lie in the pagan Russian "spirit of the territory."
