st. eom’s pasaquan

a few months ago we ventured down to buena vista, georgia to visit st. eom’s pasaquan.
eddie martin, later known as st. eom, spent 30 years transforming this 4 acre piece of rural land into a spiritual fantasy, called pasaquan. the remarkable piece of art consists of several buildings and concrete structures, each sculpted and colorfully painted in st. eom’s patterns.

in 1986, st eom passed, but today his creative and spiritual vision breathes throughout pasaquan.

the use of pressed tin is a constant theme throughout the compound. each piece was cut and arranged by hand to make the often intricate designs for the ceilings, floors, and trim.

FANTASTIC. I truly LOVE self -made worlds!
The Tarot Garden and of course -Watts Towers are amongst so many gems that are out there to be experienced. There is so much amazing energy in such places! I would love to check out St. Eom’s Pasaquan…
