When one thinks of Cornwall, sandy beaches, towering cliffs, and picturesque landscapes often come to mind. Yet, beneath the charming exterior lies a region that has been a hotbed for alternative spirituality, particularly Earth Mysteries Paganism, which influenced the art scene from 1950 to 2000. This article delves into the fascinating realm of Earth Mysteries Paganism art in Cornwall, unearthing its history, artists, and the impact on the local community.

Understanding Earth Mysteries Paganism

Earth Mysteries Paganism, also known as Gaia spirituality, is a form of religious practice that reveres the Earth and its natural phenomena. It draws inspiration from ancient pagan traditions, worshipping nature's cycles, deities, and elements. Cornwall, with its mystical landscapes and proximity to ancient sacred sites, became an ideal setting for this alternative spirituality to flourish.

This spiritual inclination towards Earth Mysteries Paganism birthed an artistic movement that sought to visually express the connection between humans, nature, and the divine. Artworks created within this movement aimed to blend mysticism, earth-centric beliefs, and artistic expertise, resulting in a truly unique and captivating form of expression.
