The Nasca Lines
In continuing our display of ‘ooparts’ mention must of course be given to the enormous motifs,
spirals and geometric shapes that appear on the Nasca Plains in Peru. There really are few places
on earth more baffling or shrouded in mystery. The actual Nazca civilization was one that had
flourished in the area from between 200 B.C. and 600 A.D. but no one really knows the true
origins or meaning of the enormous and very mysterious Nazca Lines.
The lines appear etched into a vast plateau, 37 miles long and 15 miles wide called Pampa
Colorado that sits high in the mountains of the Nasca region of Peru. The lines were probably first
brought to the wider attention of the world by Eric Von Daniken in his book “The Chariots of the
Gods.” The etchings are of truly monumental proportions with the plain containing literally
thousands of criss-crossing, zigzagging, spiraling and parallel lines covering virtually the entire
plateau. The lines have been made by simply removing the hard rocky surface of the plain and
exposing the lighter soil beneath. They range in average width from 6 inches to over 6 feet and
run in absolutely every direction across the plain. Some of the lines are over 6 miles long and yet
they still run unbroken over plains, hills and valleys and always remain perfectly straight and
true. The motifs they depict include bird, animal and human forms, astronomical symbols and
interestingly, even one section that seems to look exactly like an enormous long runway (fig.9).
The truly gigantic size of these glyphs that are depicted at Nazca also means that none of them
at all are visible to a person standing on the ground and only a person viewing them from the air
can see that they actually form shapes and pictures.
