In the northern New Mexico sand hills you will come across Ra Paulette. He is an American cave artist who digs into hillsides to crate artistic sculptures inside the mountains. As reviewed by Martha Mendoza in the LA Times, the caves Paulette made are described as hallowed places, shrines and works of art many can appreciate. Paulette is self-taught and as he revealed, he has no educational qualifications for architecture or structural engineering. However, his sculptures are stunning and stable, something that has been described as talent coupled with passion. Paulette handles his work discretely and with tactfulness ensuring every touch brings forth an unimaginable creation. For 2 years, he scooped, sanded and brushed a beautiful outcropping in northern Mexico, where he made an echoing shrine he named Windows in the Earth. It started like a mystery and his desire to explore led him to make these stunning creations. The ceilings are more than 20 feet high, with intricate rooms that can be combined to make a house.

His efforts have attracted visitors from many countries, who come to see the wonderful creations he has made in the last 25 years. Each day that passes brings the need to create something unique and better than before. This has seen him extend his creativity to making sculptures that are fully furnished with lighting and areas where a group of people can sit for something like a meeting. Many experts in the building and construction industry have also taken time to explore Ra Paulette’s work, and their comments are in support of what he has been doing saying nothing in his creations defies the rules of architecture or construction engineering. Everyone would expect Ra Paulette to occupy one of the rooms he has designed, but he has a contrary perception. His main aim is to provide others with a place they can pursue personal experiences like providing an emotional opportunity. The use of the sculptures is not specified as some could use it as a sanctuary for prayer while others will view it as simply creativity and exploration of art.
