The Owl House
If you was to take a long days drive from Cape Town into the Karoo Desert region of the Eastern Cape you may come across The Owl House. Located in the small sleepy farming town of Nieu-Bethesda. The Owl House, now a museum, was once the home and workplace of an incredible woman, the recluse artist Helen Martin.
She lived here on her own up her suicide at the age of 78. She had dedicated her life to her Sculptural Art which she created by using Cement, Wire, Brocken & Crushed Glass: the only materials available to her. The strange and spiritual subject matters of her creations isolated her from the suspicious townsfolk, this was only heightened further by this white woman’s close friendship with a local coloured man, who assisted her with the manual labour of her work.
