Ricard Breceda will be adding more of his famous statues to the California landscape after La Quinta City Council approved funds for the purchase of three pieces.

A 12-foot tall Tyrannosaurus rex priced at $10,000 and three bighorn sheep, $1,600 each will be paid for using $14,800 from the Art in Public Places fund.

Community Services Supervisor Christina T. Calderon said, “When we actually went out to see them, the sunlight was hitting them in just the right spot and they really stood out,” she said of the bighorn sheep pieces. The T. rex, “Is a very edgy piece with a lot of detail.”
