Long Description:
Reynaldo 'Sonny' Rivera's monumental bas-relief captures the spirit of Bless Me Ultima and the history of Santa Rosa. Ultima blesses Antonio before he goes fishing. A truck chugs down historic Route 66, now I40, on the Llano an old shepherd cares for his flock as (?) graxe nearby. Ranchers and farmers, the original settlers work the land. The railroad symbolizes a new era od commerce. From the hills flown the Pecos River, and in the waters swims the magical golden carp.
