Al is daar nie ‘n poskantoor, vulstasie of OTM op ‘n Suid-Afrikaanse dorpie nie, sal daar ALTYD ‘n kerk wees.

Index of

“The Owl House is a national monument in Nieu-Bethesda, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Her work was a source of suspicion and derision within the village and during her time, Helen Martins received very little support or enthusiasm about her work. Her lifelong exposure to the fine crushed glass she used to decorate her walls and ceilings caused her eyesight to start failing in 1976. She committed suicide on August 8, 1976 by ingesting caustic soda, aged 78.”
