For 25 years now, all alone, the self-taught sculptor Ra Paulette has been working every day in the desert rocks of New Mexico. There, underground, he creates an amazing world, carving fabulous caves out of light sandstone, which is easy to cut.
Ra finds suitable caves, and then deepens and widens them, creating a system of interconnected vaulted halls, and covering the walls with exquisite carvings. The sculptor does this titanic work completely alone, and he has only a faithful dog in his assistants.
Ra cuts windows in the walls and ceilings of the caves so that the sun floods the halls with bright rays during the day. He calls his mysterious underground palaces primeval sanctuaries in which a person, being alone with himself, can feel the soul of the world.
He creates for his own pleasure and self-expression. And to make it more convenient to work, he arranged for himself a cozy corner in the cave, which has everything you need for life.
