For 25 years, Ra Paulette has been silently digging caves in the high desert of New Mexico. Accompanied by his dog, he’s been building caverns with pick axes, shovels, and just a few hand tools. He works for $12 an hour and has been commissioned by landowners over the decades. His work is amazing and his attitude is super cool. He’s a zen cave artist who’s dedicated to his craft. He doesn’t call himself that, however, because he’s too busy just being cool. Check out this video and enjoy!
How amazing is this? People can actually live in these things. It reminds me of the work of Gaudi or the ancient dwellers of Petra in Jordan.
