DE LUZ – Nationally recognized sculptor and De Luz resident Austin Casson has recently installed two life-sized horse sculptures in La Cresta in Murrieta.
One of Casson’s bronze eagles was presented to President George H.W. Bush by Howie Long. Five of his works are installed in the world golf hall of fame and the permanent Breeder’s Cup Trophy, and the “Mare and Foal” bronze at the Thoroughbred Hall Of Fame, are his as well.
This latest work is called “Partners” and includes Casson’s border collie “Silka” returning a wind-blown hat to her master.
“Silka is gone now but every time I am here, its pretty special,” said Casson.
The sculptures were funded by the Trail Blazers Club and the support of many La Cresta residents.
