Ricardo Breceda's Metal & Magic

Ricardo Breceda's Metal & Magic

The landscape of the Anza-Borrego Desert has been forever changed by the dreams and visions of metal artist Ricardo Breceda, and his massive, magical beasts.

Whether it’s a metallic dragon weaving through the desert or prowling velociraptors, Anza-Borrego State Park offers the largest desert preserve in California. Protecting over 600,000 acres/242,811 hectares of badlands, palm oases, slot canyons, and cactus-studded hills, this desert oasis melds art, starry nights, and a laidback desert town smack in the middle of desolation.
