Hi, it’s Caroline the Curvy Line and today I want to talk to you about the Nazca Lines.
The Nazca Lines in Peru are made up of hundreds of different shapes and designs, including geometric shapes such as circles, triangles, and rectangles, as well as figures such as animals, plants, and humans that were created by the ancient Nazca civilization in Peru.
They are found in the Nazca Desert, which is a dry, flat region in southern Peru.
No one is exactly sure why the Nazca people created the lines – they may have been used for religious ceremonies, as a way to communicate with the gods, used for astronomical observations, or as a way to mark the changing of the seasons.
The lines are made by scraping away the top layer of rocks and sand to reveal the lighter-colored ground beneath. The lines are so large that they can only be fully appreciated from the air.
