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

Peru. Puse este pin porque me gustan los dibujos, son distintos a otros que he visto y me pregunto si será porque son de América.

Nazca Lines, Peru - ancient wonder; geoglyphs in the arid plateau of Peru’s Nazca desert. Hundreds of the figures were produced by removing the top layer of red pebbles to reveal the white pebbles underneath. Visible from both the sky and the foothills around the desert, the Nazca lines have changed little in the 1,500-2,500 years since they were built.
