Another soul lurking around the Fools Gallery. This time, we introduce The Witch of Kings Cross- Rosaleen Norton. Kicked out of school for having a ‘Depraved Nature which could corrupt the others’ Rosaleen always did things her own way. Influenced by Aleister Crowley and others, Ms. Norton crafted some amazing art from her Magic. She was devoted to the Greek God Pan, the earth’s true god- her residence completely adorned with altars to such deities. To many she was a kind, intellectual eccentric, to many others a corrupter of decency. On this Episode of WMiT, we take a peek at an often neglected Occult figure, and a wonderful artist as well.
