The Nazca lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru.  Their purpose remains unknown. The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, & lizards. The lines are shallow designs made in the ground by removing the reddish pebbles & uncovering the whitish/grayish ground beneath. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. #mytumblr
