There is something magical about Ricardo Breceda’s metal sculptures.
Perhaps because they evolved from his daughter’s request that her father
build a dinosaur. Not many fathers would acquiesce, but his little girl was
his princess. Breceda built the dinosaur and went on to build many more
dinosaurs, horses, and elephants.
His menagerie caught the attention of millionaire Dennis Avery who
commissioned Breceda to build 131 different metal sculptures scattered on
his property in Borrego Valley with the most dramatic creature being a
fantasy giant dragon that dives under the road and has a rattlesnake tail.
Today, Ricardo’s sculptures can be found scattered about southern
California and now inside this coloring book!
