About Ricardo Breceda
Halfway to San Diego, just west of the post office that marks the tiny town of Aguanga, you’ll find dinosaurs. Lots of them — along with giant rattlesnakes, leaping horses, knights in armor, bighorn sheep and a dog. These massive metal sculptures are the work of Ricardo Breceda, who calls himself an “accidental artist.” When his daughter, Lianna, turned seven years old, she wanted a life-sized Tyrannosaurus rex for her birthday. Breceda had worked in construction but had no training in welding or art. Nevertheless, to please her, he built “T-Rex” — followed by a Spinosaurus and a Triceratops.
That was 18 years ago and he hasn’t stopped since. His sculpture garden in Aguanga boasts at least 350 pieces; 130 or so rise out of the desert in Borrego Springs. One of Breceda’s dinosaurs surveys the cool, shady courtyard of the La Quinta Library and a few more camp out on the road to Twentynine Palms. For more information visit RicardoBreceda.com.
