Incredible Hand-Sculpted Caves By Artist Ra Paulette

Hand-Sculpted Caves

For the past 25 years, Artist Ra Paulette has been carving out man-made caves from the sandstone hills of New Mexico, and then sculpting these spaces into works of art he calls wilderness shrines. With only his dog for company, the talented artist has been affecting emotions through his beautiful spaces carved out of the high desert.

Paulette has no degree in sculpting. He’s not a structural engineer, and he’s not an architect. He is simply a man who found his passion.
