For a decade, artist Ra Paulette has used a sandstone cave located in Northern New Mexico as a grand-scale sculptural media. Working alone in this desert oasis he's fashioned, with his dog as his only companion, he sculpts one cavern area and moves on to another, carving each subterranean room in a different pattern and style. Paulette says he's trying to achieve a space that offers "spiritual renewal and personal well being." The cave is located between Taos and Santa Fe. I just visited New Mexico this month, and the area certainly struck me as a place of spiritual renewal and well being; Paulette's cave and its surrounds look as if they would only intensify those feelings.
A 2013 documentary of the project called Cave Digger has received an incredible amount of acclaim. It's even nominated for an Oscar in the "Best Short Documentary" category. The film is available for purchase online here; see the trailer there as well. Read details about the property listing and see a photo tour of Paulette's work of art at Santa Fe Properties.
