We can say with absolute certainty that this creator has created a truly unique masterpiece!
Ra Paulette creates amazing man-made caves in New Mexico. At 67, he works hard every day. With the help of simple tools at hand, such as a shovel, a pickaxe and a cart, he digs huge passages, tunnels and caves in the sandstones, which he draws out with his own hands, using all his perseverance and amazing skill.
According to the master himself, he gets real pleasure from every minute of this difficult task. Ra Paulette claims that he has found his life’s work and is very happy about it. For his caves, he receives a small symbolic reward, but the man does not strive for either fame or money.
He wants his creations to make people feel far from the worldly bustle and make them think about their place in this world.
Ra Paulette has no special education. He just woke up one day and realized that he wanted to dig caves.
This extraordinary man dug his first cave in 1987.
The Creator did not expect it to become so popular, and was forced to close the cave for visits, as all the necessary security measures were not observed.
Ra Paulette decorates the walls of the caves with various ornaments.
The beautiful works of Ra Pauletta fascinate. It is hard to imagine how much work it cost him to create them all. A man creates, first of all, for other people, wanting to help them feel unity with the world. The caves of Ra Poletta are very beautifully and professionally made: apparently, this man has a special talent. So far, Ra Paulette has created 14 caves and is currently working on the 15th, which will be the best and largest of his works.
He has been working tirelessly on this project for ten years. It should be a special place where a person can feel his connection with the earth and reflect on his own essence.
After the first success, the master tried to hire, but he refused, as he could not make caves except by following his own inspiration.
About this incredible man and his creations, the film “The Cave Digger” was made, which was nominated for an Oscar.
You look how creatively the person approached the embodiment of his ideas! Analogues of Egyptian frescoes meet the visitor “in the hallway” of this original house. And the bedroom is decorated with wall sculptures in antique style.
