In Perù, nel deserto di #Nazca, 13.000 linee formano più di 800 disegni. Il colibrì è uno dei geoglifi più famosi: la distanza tra gli estremi delle sue due ali è di 66 metri ed è lungo 94 metri.
The Nazca lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. Their purpose remains unknown. The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, & lizards. The lines are shallow designs made in the ground by removing the reddish pebbles & uncovering the whitish/grayish ground beneath. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. #mytumblr
The Nazca Lines are located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the pampa (a large flat area of southern Peru). The desolate plain of the Peruvian coast which comprises the Pampas of San Jose (Jumana), Socos, El Ingenio and others in the province of Nasca, is 400 Km. South of Lima, covers an area of approximately 450 km2, of sandy desert as well as the slopes of the contours of the Andes.
Nazca Lines: The Great Geoglyphs of Peru - The Big Riddle
Relatively unknown until the invention of the airplane. The Nazca Lines are located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. These lines were discovered in 1927 by Peruvian archaeologist Toribio Mejia Xesspe, on foot. Many years later these lines are still being debated among scholars on their meaning and who they were made for, seeing as how the only way you can see what they are is from the sky. Was it art for beings from far away planets? Ancient Aliens theorists say yes!
SPIDER: Scholars believe the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 AD.
