Peru Nazca – Lines

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 or giant astronomical calendars[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.

Most People have heard of the Nazca Lines in Peru – an ancient civilsations mystery as to whom created it. Now we have a new Nazca area – in Australia. In the middle of nowhere – 100’s of miles into the dunes – a double dry lake bed – with two waterhole s– there are ‘Nazca Lines’ drawn within. I guess there will be needed much research into what this actually is: Is it a natural phenomenon? I doubt it. On one forum, someone porposed it was animal tracks leading to the water. I doubt it. No animals are that ridgid in their behavior. They may follw behind one another on tracks, but after a long dry desert walk – they will spread out once by the waters edge to drink – and Not drink one at a time! Someone else proposed it was due to thermal mass – volcanic surce below it – hence the fan pattern. However this lake does not buldge to create a fan pattern. There is only 4-5ft differentiation over the entire lake. I have baptised it “Austrailia’s Nazca Lines.” I propose it is the aborigones work.. a sacred site. A celestial type Map, showing their equinoxes and other celestial celeboratory dates. throughout the year. But then again – what do we know about the Nazca Lines in Peru? Nothing about who made the, and why.. Perhaps we need to find some elders in the area that may explain for us. It is RESEARCH TIME! A final version will be uploaded shortly – this is the test site only.
