A map and guide to the 27 sites in Borrego Valley, CA, where life-size metal sculptures are displayed in a desert landscape surrounded by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The folded laminated pocket guide has 16 4x5-inch panels with brief representative descriptions of the 129 individual sculptures. Sculptor Ricardo Breceda’s “Sky Art” is the perfect blend of stunning craftsmanship and placement in open desert landscape. From science to history and nature, the sculptures have evolved into whim and fantasy – something for everyone on this large desert palette. Sculptures include Plio-Pleistocene animals that once roamed this desert, Spanish explorers, bighorn sheep and dinosaurs.
