Nazca or Nasca, ancient
indigenous culture of S Peru,
fl. before A.D. 1000. The Nazca are known for their polychrome pottery
and skillful weaving and dyeing. Aerial exploration of the arid tableland
surrounding their valley has revealed a network
of lines interspersed with giant animal forms-probably related to Nazca
astronomy and religion.
The plain of Nazca is located
450 kilometers south of Lima on the edge of the Andes in Peru. It is a
dry and hot area. Both desert and mountains are covered with thousands
of straight lines for miles at a time.
The longest line is 23
kilometers long and stretches straight as an arrow over valleys and mountains.
Between and over the narrow lines can be found airstrip-like plains which
pilots of today endearingly call "the E.T.-airport."
Between the lines and "airstrips"
and also on the mountain slopes there are vast ground markings, not only
of animals and human beings but also of mysterious geometric arrangements.
All these things are so huge, that they can only be detected from the air.

organ on right hind leg)

Hancock, this spider represents the ground version of the constellation Orion)
