I took these photos a while ago, and have always wanted to get them scrapped. Not sure if I like this page as it is - I think it needs something???


Journaling reads: Located in Borrego Springs, California. Galleta Meadows is the home of metal “Sky Art”, commisioned by Dennis Avery. Although these animals are erected on private land he purchased in the 1990’s, it is open to the public for all to enjoy. This land is now inhabited by creatures from as far back as 3 million year ago, and mainly those which at one point inhabited the area. It began after Avery funded a book called “Fossils Treasures of the Anza Borrego Desert”, and then met Recardo Breceda, a sculptor who was creating dinosaurs in Perris, CA. He decided to commission these works of art, starting first with three giant tusked gomphotheres — ancient members of the elephant family. They now include over 70 sculptures including wild pigs, sabertooth tigers, ancient camels, llamas, tortoises and monstrous meat eating birds. Although no dinosaur remain have been found in the area, he has included some. My favorite are these horses of Galleta Meadows.

A side note about the land owner, he is the Avery that owns Avery Office Products. The lands has no facilities, but he allows people to come on the land to see the sculptures, and even camp if they want. I will eventually do some photos of the other creatures he comissioned. It's pretty cool.
