"Windows in the Earth Shrine" is one of the many caves Ra Paulette has made. If you want to check this man's art in real life, you need to visit 'Rancho De San Juan', a resort in Northern Mexico. The resort is in possession of a giant sandstone butte, in which Ra Paulette was asked to create a cathedral-like atmosphere.
