RA PAULETTE - CAVE SCULPTOR - MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION
CBS News' Lee Cowan.
"Would you call a child being obsessed with play?" replied Paulette. "You wouldn't use that word 'obsessed.' You know, when you're doing something you love and are drawn to it, you want to do it all the time."
Paulette uses only hand tools.
Paulette calls them his "wilderness shrines" - massive in scale, poetic in their design.
He has no degree in sculpting. He's not a structural engineer, and he's not an architect. He is simply a man who found his passion.
His plan is not only to carve, but paint these sandstone walls, creating what he hopes will be a healing retreat -- a community gathering place, complete with a waterfall and pool.
He doesn't get rich off of creating such wonderful living spaces. "No, it's the process, you know?" Paulette said. "I'm having the time of my life."
