Ricardo Breceda Sculptures

Sadly, these sculptures are all from Rosarito Beach in Mexico. Ricardo is a bit of a con man. Perhaps he made sculptures years ago, but now he just buys them and resells them.

[Haley Foster, 11/26/2018]

Fun Fact: Rosarito Beach was also the source of all the rocks for the "Pet Rock" craze of 1975.


Acre of Metal Sculptures

Sculptor Ricardo Breceda has put over 100 of his sculptures on an acre of land to view. There are also tables and chairs to sit in the shade.

Metal Sculptures of Ricardo Breceda

The sculptures are on 79 and Rainbow St. There are several dozens available for view and purchase. The sculptor is even available a lot of the time on site! Amazing work.

Western Themed Metal Sculptures

Just a few miles east of I-15 in Temecula, is a collection of full-size western sculptures, including a stagecoach, larger than life rattlesnake, and various horses. Further east a mile or so is a collection of "wild mustangs" jumping over Hwy 79 as cars pass beneath them. Adjacent to 38000 Hwy 79 S (aka Temecula Parkway), and further east on the highway.
