When Ra was asked if he is obsessed with cave digging, his thoughtful response was: “Is a child obsessed with play?” He shared with CBS Sunday Morning News that when you love what you are doing, you are driven to do it all the time. The beautiful work serves as an environmental project, and Ra hopes the transformed caves will inspire people to feel and open up emotionally.

Because Paulette and his ability to transform ordinary sandstone into magnificent art is so intriguing, he was the focus of a documentary called “Cave Digger,” which actually ended up winning an academy award!
