Nazca, PERU

An effigy of a bird probably depicting a hummingbird, drawn on the Pampa. It measures approximately 90 metres from beak to plume. Where its beak ends are a group of lines with supposed astronomical significance: one of them marks the winter solstice by indication the solstitial point on the horizon where the sun rises on the 21st of December. These are one of many geometric ground drawings comprising of lines and spirals created by the pre-Inca Nazca culture in Southern Peru between 200 BCE and 600 CE. These giant geoglyphs, etched into the Pampa de Nazca, are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
