Nazca Lines

Line breaks: Nazca Lines
Pronunciation: /ˈnazkə
 
/
A group of huge abstract designs, including representations of birds and animals, and straight lines on the coastal plain north of Nazca in southern Peru, clearly visible from the air but almost indecipherable from ground level. Made by exposing the underlying sand, they belong to a pre-Inca culture, and their purpose is uncertain; some believe that the designs represent a vast calendar or astronomical information.
