Nazca lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca desert in south of Lima Peru. Scholars believe the “Nazca Lines” were created by the Naza culture between 400 and 500 a.d. Hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, lizards, etc.
The lines are shallow designs made in the ground by removing the ubiquitous reddish pebbles and uncovering the whitish ground beneath. Hundreds are simple lines or geometric shapes; more than seventy are zoomorphic. Largest figures are over 200 meters (660 ft) across. Scholars differ in interpreting the purpose of the designs, but in general they ascribe religious significance to them.
