Nazca

www.arbutusyarns.com :: The Nazca Lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches more than 80 kilometres (50 mi) between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana in Peru. Although some local geoglyphs resemble Paracas motifs, these are largely believed to have been created by the Nazca culture between 200 BCE and 700 CE. There are hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks or orcas, llamas, and lizards. The lines are shallow designs in the ground where the reddish pebbles that cover the surrounding landscape have been removed, revealing the whitish earth underneath. Hundreds are simple lines or geometric shapes, and more than seventy are natural or human figures. The largest are over 200 metres (660 ft) across. Scholars differ in interpreting what the lines were for but generally ascribe religious significance to them. “The geometric ones could indicate the flow of water or be connected to rituals to summon water. The spiders, birds, and plants could be fertility symbols. Other possible explanations include: irrigation schemes, giant astronomical calendars, or landing for spaceships.[1]” The dry, windless, stable climate of the plateau has preserved the lines to this day, for the most part. Extremely rare changes in weather may temporarily alter the general designs.

    If the dating estimates are correct about the ica/wari people being at a peak about 2000 years ago, i estimate that the ‘airstrip’ type lines are more recent.

    look into the ica/wari culture, look at their artistic style, then look at every picture of the nazca lines you can. you will see ica/wari designs, then you will see some of them have been partially over-written by the “minimalist” airstrip-type lines which would indicate to me that over a span of time there have been different epochs going on.

    you think that civilizations that were as advanced as about a small African tribe today could cut a mountain in half or draw perfect images into the ground?? NO! It was the aliens that did it. Call me crazy but just watch the video’s… you cant argue with proof unless your really arrogent…

    WTH? is that Indonesian language?

  5. isurfvan says:

    i believe the people from nazca did not makes these lines….they are far to complex to make for a ancient civilization…..especially when the upper part of the mountain was cut off

    @ dombadil… what a crock! the surface is covered in dark rocks, when you remove them theres a light undersoil… the lines have been recreated in modern day by removing the stones to expose subsoil!
    also you do not need lead and sand to make glass!!!! superheat sand with lightning and hey presto you have glass without lead!

    Well fact is they do exist (the lines) and one drawing can be as huge as a whole city or valley. Some of these indigenous tribes claim to be routinely in contact with aliens. Well I guess all one can do is camp there in Peru for a year and see for themself.

    @spiritual1703 what the @#%&… that’s Indonesian language and what he speak has nothing to do with the subtitle! what’s kind of funny around 2:21, when the subtitles shows “The Man” , the speaker actually said “taman”, which means garden in Indonesian… what is the uploader gonna say about that then…

  10. dombadil says:

    the lines are pure glass in powder

    when you know that you need lead and… sand to make glass…

    and that if you do NOT put lead in the mass you will get ? powder glass

    the lines were drawn with high temperature rays

    how ? no idea

    but ALL the left artifacts of forgotten times

  20. beghuk says:

    mysterious video but that shaman speaker is indonesian and the translation is wrong

  21. doobmarster says:

    if they were replicers of sky writting plains (which they can’t be beause the nazca people only lived to 200ad(long before planes) why wold a plane draw such sufistagated drawings??????

  22. winterstellar says:

    Sounds like that native has been talking to Erich VonDanichen or some similar retard.(Isn’t he in jail now, by the way?) Hehe, of course even complete idiots would know that those patterns would be visible from high altitude, and could very well have thought of it as a way of “communicating” with their imaginary friends..i.e “gods”:)

  23. peru29 says:

    Nasca is with S as a quechuan word that mean place of suffer, however, the shaman has an idea but I have a theory related to some figures I saw in Bolivia, New Zealand and Arizona,US . The figures are just part of an open book that can be study in the Andes into the andean world……

  24. lsdinc says:

    Really nice work, seems very mysterious.
    I dont really get it tho, when where the lines drawn in desert and if he thinks the lines where put there by planes, there has only been planes in the last 80 years.

Speak Your Mind
