Alberto Gutierrez, also known as 'The Hermit’, has lived for several decades on a mountain known as "Finca El Jalacate”, located in Nicaragua’s El Tisey Natural Reserve.

Now nearly 80-years-old, Don Alberto has dedicated himself to sculpting with his own hands the mountain where he has lived for over 40 years.

Footage filmed Wednesday shows Don Alberto sculpting the rock, alongside numerous works he’s created during his quest to turn the mountainside into a form of unique natural art gallery.

"I started the year 1977 until 2020 there will be 43 years that, without resting, I work every day," said Don Alberto.

With more than 3,500 sculptures exhibited on the mountain, Don Alberto's home has become an attraction for both Nicaraguan and foreign tourists.
