The Nazca Lines consist of hundreds of geoglyphs carved on the desert of southern Peru thought to have been created around 400 A.D. What makes them so fascinating is the shear size of the images and precision of the geometric shapes that can only be seen by flying above in a plane or from the tops of hills miles away.
Most are geometric lines and shapes, but many are artistic depictions of animals and in one case a man, that some believe looks like a astronaut.
Once again, we do not know why they were created but some believe that it was a plea to their Gods in the hope to bring back the rain.
The Nazca people are also known for binding their heads to create what we call “elongated skulls”. This practice in amazing for multiple reasons that I will be discussed in another post dedicated to the “practice” (if in fact that actually practiced such a strange ritual).
