The Cavedigger

Not every person does something for monetary gratification!  Artist Ra Paulette has spent almost 30 years excavating the arid landscape of northern New Mexico by creating characterful grottoes that he calls "luminous caves". Using only hand tools, including pick axes, shovels and scrapers, the 69-year-old sculptor burrows into the sides of the cliffs, opening up vertical shafts as he works to provide ventilation and natural light. Practical features such as staircases, windows and doors are integrated to make the caves suitable for use as sanctuaries or places for meditation. Paulette sometimes carves the inner surfaces with forms resembling flowers, figures and tree trunks.
