For the past 25 years, Paulette has been sculpting these incredibly elaborate works of beauty using only hand tools. He doesn't have a degree in engineering or architecture. He's just a self-taught sculptor with a boundless passion for the mystical spaces of the Southwest.
"It's very exciting. It's a culmination. Actually, the process is what I get out of it, but I have a lot of ideas and plans, how this could be a societal tool, how this could be used as an instrument of connecting people to the earth and also to their own inner sense of who they are. I'm creating a venue, a very unique venue," Paulette told CBS.
"This is the largest thing I've ever done," Paulette told CBS. "I'm taking all the things that I've learned in all the other caves over the years and finally getting an opportunity to experiment with gilding the lily."
