EDDIE OWENS MARTIN

PASAQUOYAN MAN WITH RITUAL HEADDRESS AND LEVITATION SUIT, CA. 1965-1975

About the Artwork

In the mid-1950s, after several decades of fast living in New York, Eddie Owens Martin returned home to Georgia. Martin dedicated the remainder of his life to endowing seven acres of inherited land with nine hundred feet of painted cement fence, towering totems, and ornate temples that formed Pasaquan, a land of the future.

Martin devoted himself to spreading the good word of the Pasaquoyan religion and called himself St. EOM (the acronym for his name). In sculptures like this one, St. EOM realized his vision of fellow Pasaquoyans, who wore tall headdresses that allowed for the extension of their hair toward the sky. “Your hair is your antenna to the spirit world, man, and you should never cut it,” said St. EOM.

Since 2014, the Kohler Foundation, Inc., has worked with the Pasaquan Preservation Society to save this extraordinary world, which is two hours southeast of Atlanta and reopened to the public in 2016.
