News: Nasca Lines aerial views on National Geographic magazine

 

Lima. Mar. 18 (ANDINA).- Peru's Nasca Lines were captured by National Geographic photographer Robert Clark. Pictures are remarkable for their beauty and originality. especially aerial views that enhance the ongoing debate rather than revealing the origin of geoglyphs .


The March edition of the prestigious National Geographic magazine. covering wildlife and environment conservation issues. contains a stunning photo gallery of Nasca Lines and its surroundings.
 
The photos are included in an article titled "Spirits in the Sand: The ancient Nasca Lines of Peru shed their secrets" writen by Stephen S. Hall.

“From the air. the lines etched in the floor of the desert were hard to see. like drawings left in the sun too long. As our pilot cut tight turns over a desert plateau in southern Peru. north of the town of Nasca. I could just make out a succession of beautifully crafted figures”. Hall stated in his article.

Since the lines became widely known in the late 1920s. when commercial air travel was introduced between Lima and the southern Peruvian city of Arequipa. the lines have puzzled all the world.

“The mysterious desert drawings known as the Nasca lines have puzzled archaeologists. anthropologists. and anyone fascinated by ancient cultures in the Americas… waves of scientists. and amateurs. have inflicted various interpretations on the lines. as if they were the world's largest set of Rorschach inkblots”. he added.

 

The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert of Peru. They have been designated a Unesco World Heritage Site.

 

Although some local geoglyphs resemble Paracas motifs. scholars believe the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca culture between 200 BCE and 700 CE.

 

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