Pagan Eye: The Museum of Witchcraft in London


Last night I went to a wonderful party at the Viktor Wynd's Museum of Curiosities in London to celebrate the exhibition of photographs by Sara Hannant of items from the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. The picture above is one I took of Sara standing by a display case of some of her work and items from the MWM's collection.

Sara is such a brilliant photographer that I always feel a little bit embarrassed when I take pictures myself around her, because I know I don't have anything like her level of skill. I really do recommend going to the exhibition if you haven't done so already to see her amazing photographs. They are all also printed in the book Of Shadows, by Sara and Simon Costin.

The exhibition also includes some fascinating magical items including a wax curse poppet, a witch mirror, spells and charms.

The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic's London exhibition is on until Wednesday 28 February at the Viktor Wynd's Museum of Curiosities, 11 Mare Street, London E8 4RP. You can find more details here: http://www.thelasttuesdaysociety.org/

You can read my review of Of Shadows here: http://www.badwitch.co.uk/2016/10/of-shadows-objects-from-museum-of.html and you can view Of Shadows on Amazon.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
