The Nazca Lines, etched into the desert plains more than 2000 years ago. Maria Reiche, who devoted her life to studying and protecting the lines, believed they were astronomical signposts.
Several of the figures point toward the solstice. The giant monkey corresponds to the Ursa Major constellation, she found.
Many scientists now believe that several of the geometric figures indicate the location of life-giving water in aquifer channels deep beneath the bone-dry desert floor.
You can ponder this question from a birds-eye vantage point in a soaring plane, one of the world’s most enduring, enigmatic riddles: Why were giant iconic Nazca Lines etched timelessly into the desert plateau?
