People are coming from around the United States and internationally to see the amazing 130 full-sized metal sculptures here that are inspired by creatures that roamed this same desert millions of years ago. The artworks range from prehistoric mammals to historical characters, fanciful dinosaurs, and a 350-foot-long fanciful serpent. — DesertUSA



This was an unexpected gem as we drove from San Diego to Indian Wells.The art workis really neat and Ricardo was happy to answer any of our questions. We wanted to leave a tip for the experience but Ricardo refused to take any money and was just happy we enjoyed his 20+ years of work(there were some smaller art pieces for sale but we had no room in our suit cases).Thanks for sharing your art with the world Ricardo!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift of creativity,craft and vision! I first saw it last year in Anza Borrego,and misidentified your patron (Dennis Avery) as the artist. This year we found your place by accident, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. When we met, I couldn’t believe you were the artist because you seemed so humble, and now I love your work even more than before!
