Lines forming the shape of a llama and a snake have been uncovered by recent sandstorms over Peru.

Quote

Located in the Nazca desert, the vast and ancient geoglyphs of the Nazca Lines are generally regarded as one of the most important archaeological discoveries in history.

That is not a camelid, it is an amoeba. This is proof that the Nazcans were working with the author of the Voynich MS to create giant amoeba art.

It doesn't look like a llama to me either, but I am not sure what it DOES look like. Maybe three birds? Maybe not all of it was uncovered?

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

what i'm puzzled about, is why these pictures are considered "mysterious".
it's not as if there were no precidents when it comes to landscape drawings.
there are thousands.
why make a mystery out of something that isn't?
people have been drawing pictures on any available surface since time immemorial.
just because we don't know why (specifically-you can't put your modern mindset onto ancient graffiti), it doesn't mean they were exclusively meant for the gods, does it?
there's F-A-R too much emphasis placed on religion when it comes to ancient cultures, because we're viewing it through a 20c mindset.
only able to be viewed from the sky my ass.
clues to water?
maybe.
it makes more sense than [insert woowoo theory here] "gods".
these people were the same as us, they enjoyed art for art's sake.
why invoke gods?!
because it makes for a better story.
.
which is s#!t.

viewed upside-down, it looks like a Trade Federation lander about to disgorge its compliment of battle-droids.
.
but i'll betcha anything the Nazcans didn't anticipate the Star Wars prequels by 1400yrs.
.
if they HAD, i'll bet you a whole English pound they'd have f*©£ing drown George Lucas at birth.....

Funny how I just watched this documentary called Hidden Planet of the Nazca:



2 hours ago, which had 10 minutes on the Nazca Lines. Talk about synchronicity! One day, when I have the money, I will travel there and dig out those underground tunnels. Not mysterious at all!

The bigger one kind of looks like two riders on a 'camel?'...the bird one doesn't really look too birdy to me though.

The lines are incredible, as well as the sun-star glyph.
