Amazing carvings in New Mexico caves

For the last 10 years, artist Ra Paulette carved a sandstone cave in New Mexico’s desert.
 
Paulette created different designs and styles for every cavern, giving each one very specific qualities and textures. He carved over  14 different caves in the desert outside of San Jose.
No two of Paulette’s caves are alike. Some feature under-size doors or skylights that let the sun in, while other include benches carved into the wall. The walls are also decorated with designs from flowers to abstract formes.
 

 

The purpose of this gigantic artwork is to create an environment that would inspire “spiritual renewal and personal well being.” It will also serve as a venue for artistic events once it’s finished.
