The Owl House

Helen Martins' Owl House, often cited as South Africa's finest example of outsider art, is an extraordinary, other-worldly home of concrete and ground glass sculptures.

The Owl House is a museum in Nieu-Bethesda, Eastern Cape, South Africa. The Owl House and surrounding Camel Yard contain over 300 concrete and glass sculptures created by Helen Elizabeth Martins and her assistants. Almost all of the sculptures face towards the east, many depicting a pilgrimage to a suitably positioned nativity scene. Helen Martins was almost 50 before she started decorating the Owl House and creating her marvelous sculptures.
