Priests may have designed Nazca lines

4 posts in this topic

news icon rHigh priests at an ancient religious compound in southern Peru may have designed the mysterious Nazca lines, a set of huge geometric patterns, animal figures and long lines etched in the desert, the area's top archaeologist said.

Researchers say the Cahua-chi compound, built in 400 B.C., is just across the Nazca Valley from the lines, one of Peru's most popular tourist attractions and a U.N. World Heritage site.

Well, maybe some definite answers. That in a way will be letting the wind out of the sails. No more speculation. Will be interesting to see if they recover anything else and how others will embrace or debate these findings.

It is logical to think that the Nazca people's religious beliefs originated in this ceremonial site and got expressed on the wide-open plain," Italian archaeologist Giuseppe Orefici, who leads research at Cahuachi, said last week. Geographical proximity is not the only evidence of links between the two ancient sites — the same religious icons appear at the lines and on ceramics and crafts excavated at the Cahuachi compound.

"Felines and whales are found in all Nazcan art, and this is what we've found in the geoglyphs," Orefici said, referring to ground drawings surrounding the Nazca lines and the Cahuachi compound. The Nazca lines, best viewed from the air, were made by clearing away surface shale or piling it up onto other stones. Among its most emblematic figures is a giant monkey with a spiral tail.

Even if ur joking about that comment, its still pretty valid.

If u replace the "alien" part with "god" or "supreme being", it could make a bit of sense?

My opinion is that they prob did contruct these images for their gods to see, like christians constructing beautiful chapels. Everyone wants to please their gods some way?

Id really like to see someone replicate these drawings, just to see the kind effort it would take and if its possible without some sought of EXTRA-ordinary help...

Maybe its just simple math? Maybe they were smarter than we think for that time?

Not saying its done by aliens, but im not saying its not a possiblity.

Just very unusual? Has any other culture have the same images with that amount of detail and scale?
