He loved Borrego Springs and while he supported the down-trodden throughout the world he was a special friend to Borrego Springs. He lived in Borrego Springs where he raised his children (who attended the public schools there) from 1990 to 2001
Ricardo Brecado, is known as the Accidental Artist. After an accident ended his career as a construction worker he discovered he had artistic ability and began sculpting with sheet metal . Dennis Avery found him in Temecula, California and commissioned 131 sculptures that would be placed in Galleta Meadows between 2008 and 2011.
Here are just a few of the lifelike prehistoric animals that roamed the valley sculpted by Brecado.
