Allosaurus and Carnotaurus

This is the first of a prehistoric fantasy series based on the work of the artist Ricardo Breceda. Hopefully there is a surrealistic or primordial feel. Please feel free to comment. Which works better, dinosaur head shots (LOL) or the whole bodies?


In the desert near Borrego Springs, California there reside a number of prehistoric creatures, in their full life size glory. It is very eire to approach these at night. First you see a very large shadowy figure, difficult to initially make out. As you approach you can make out large teeth and claws, and then a large angry appearing life sized dinosaur, blending into the desert landscape. These appear very realistic in the starlight, and the mood they set is perfect. These are the creations of the artist Ricardo Breceda. There are dozens of creatures spread out over several miles of desert around Borrego Springs, from mammoths, to dinosaurs, to giant sloths, to saber-toothed tigers, and more. They are fascinating to see in the day, but seem to come alive at night. They are worth a visit!
