Santa Rosa, New Mexico
In Santa Rosa you will find a stunning statue of Rudolfo Anaya. Mr. Anaya was a writer and is most known for his book “Bless Me, Ultima”. Now, right in the heart of downtown you will see the statue of him still sitting, pondering, and creating his famous masterpiece. You can see the bronze statue from far away, but it takes some close observing to notice just all the fine details that went into this piece of art. While your there, take some time to walk to the fountain right by the statue, and you will notice that the fountain is actually a part of the art. As you walk to the fountain, you can actually see a few “pages” of his book scattered on the ground around the fountain. Definitely a detail most can appreciate, especially if you have ever read the book.
