Ra Paulette, the Cavedigger
Ra Paulette creates cathedral-like 'eighth wonder of the world' scuptural caves using nothing but hand tools. Working in the malleable sandstone cliffs of Northern New Mexico his creations rival the work of the great earth artists - Goldsworthy, Heiser, Smithson. But Ra’s work has gone unrecognized. Patrons who commission caves often cut him off due to artistic differences or lack of funds, leaving Ra struggling. Following his passion has cost him almost everything. Undaunted, at age 65, he’s decided to pursue his 10-year magnum opus on public land, without permission, working for no one but himself.
