Between The Nazca Lines

The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. These lines, which were scratched on Earth’s surface between 500 BC and 500 AD, are among archaeology's greatest enigmas because of their quantity, nature, size and continuity.


The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas and lizards.


THEORETICALLY SPEAKING

The most notorious theory of how the Nazca Lines were formed, we owe to Erich Von Daniken, who first proposed that these lines and figures were ancient landing sites for aliens.


Some believe that the Nazca Lines are some sort of religious symbols. The geoglyphs were constructed as offerings to the gods in exchange for water in their overly dry land.


Researchers theorize that the lines could point in the direction of the rising of important stars or planets. Formations like the spider and the monkey could show star constellations like Orion and Ursa Mayor.
