The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. The high, arid plateau stretches more than 80 km (50 mi) and was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The designs are shallow lines made in the ground by removing the reddish pebbles and uncovering the whitish/grayish ground beneath. Scholars believe that they were created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 AD. The hundreds of individual figures range in intricacy from simple lines to complex hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, and lizards.
