While the Nazca Lines are interesting, I never got a sense of real curiosity until I saw this image.  Sure, the pictographs of animals can be explained away, but this one is not like the others.  It is not some people scrapping the ground away to make an image of a familiar animal, this is precision work and unlike what I have seen from photos of other Nazca Lines.  Does anyone have an opinion or information about this image?  Is it hoax?

I have seen numerous compliations/series of pictures of the Nazca Lines... this image is one that i have NEVER seen. You would think that with its more geometric centered theme that this one above all the animal pictographs would grab the most attention. My inclination is to say that seeing how this is the first time hearing/seeing this glyph that i call it out as not being one of the nazca lines.... it might not necessarly be a hoax though as it could very well be real.. just not a Nazca Line

Maṇḍala (मण्डल) is a Sanskrit word meaning "circle." Mandalas have spiritual and ritual significance in Hinduism and Buddhism.[1][2]
The term is of Hindu origin. It appears in the Rig Veda as the name of the sections of the work, but is also used in other Indian religions, particularly Buddhism.
The basic form of most Hindu and Buddhist mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the shape of a T

I'm like you, I have seen many pictures of the Nazca Lines and when I came accross this one, it is like, Hello? what is going on here. If it is not a hoax, I just can't fit it in with the other Nazca Lines.

Not quite sure what a Hindu Mandala would have to do with the nazca lines. Could be a hoax, could be some weird sort of irrigation channel system. Could just be some interpretation of their beliefs. One thing it is not though, is runways for aliens.

There are so many hoaxs, but as the ancient child drew lines in the stars representing figures of myths, so they also drew lines and figures on the lands. :) migration symbols

you are assuming the alliens don't have a need for circular runways!

I found it using google earth at the coordinates shown in one of the posted pics.

It's the "Calendario Nazca."  Nazca calendar.

Of course, nobody knows if it's really a calendar.

It's a bit north of the usual Nazca suspects.

It looks like a stylised hand flipping the bird.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

The Andean Cross
by Dr. Cynthia Bellacero

Today I was contemplating the Andean Cross.  In the Quechua language  this cross is called Chakana. It’s name comes from the Quechua word “Chakay” meaning to cross or bridge.

Incan life and society was based upon prinicples of belief and behavior that is symbolized by the Chakana.  The chakana still holds meaning to modern day Andean culture.  Art and jewlery made by Incan descendants often depict the Chakana.  In fact, I purchased a lovely silver Chakana pendant while I was in Cusco.

The Chakana is a 3-stepped cross symbolizing the 3 tiers of Inca life:

* Hanan Pacha: the upper world of the stars, celestial beings and gods (It’s animal totem is the condor)
* Kay Pacha: the middle world of Mother Earth and human life (represented by the puma)
* Uqhu Pacha: the lower world of the underworld and death ( represented by the serpent)

The circle in the center denotes Cusco, the navel of the Inca Empire.  Cusco, from the Quechua word “Qosqo” means origin, navel, belly button.  The entire Incan universe is thought to have radiated out from this central point of the Inca kingdom.  This is where the “Sapa Inca” or ruler resided with his court.

The 4 cross arms depict the 4 cardinal directions (north, south, east, & west) and the 4 classical elements (earth, air, water, & fire).  They also represent the 4 rules Andean people live by: work, love, knowledge, and sharing.

Some depictions of the Chakana have a triangle around the hole in its center.  The 2 bottom points at the base of the triangle represent duality, such as man:woman, good:evil, and dark:light.  The peak of the triangle represents balance.

The whole symbol also represents the 12 months of the celestial year.  Many buildings, temples, and religious sanctuaries have chakana iconography.

Here is another from the same page.  It looks like there are at least three geomtric glyphs, one to the left of the main one and one down and to the right.
