Its the Sun Clock Geoglyph and is not part of Nazca but instead in Palpa, the Ica region Peru

About 50 km away or so.

Thanks for the help.  I'll do some reading.  I was surprised to see its named the Sun Clock as it looks nothing like a modern day clock.

I don't recall but someone may have used it to monitor the solar cycle (or that is one theory). You can find material about it on line.

That sure does look like a mechanical clock. It had toothed wheels and a bell.

The statement I was replying to was;  " I was surprised to see its named the Sun Clock as it looks nothing like a modern day clock." I hope you are not suggesting the first ever mechanical clock looks like a modern day clock.

But you said: "Neither did the first ever mechanical clock."

And the image you posted sure does look like a 'first ever mechanical clock'. Maybe you meant to say 'modern' instead of 'mechanical' ?

" I was surprised to see its named the Sun Clock as it looks nothing like a modern day clock." Reply: While posting an image of the first mechanical clock; "Neither did the first ever mechanical clock." Meaning: The first ever mechanical clock did not look like a modern day clock. Am I wrong?
