The top figure may be seaweed and the bottom figure is a bird.
The Nazca Lines (geoglyphs) are located on the Nazca Plain 400 Km south of Lima, Peru. They were created between 200 BC and 600 AD and cover nearly
450 sq Km. They may have been used for rituals, probably related to Astronomy. There are
about 300 figures, mostly straight lines
and geometric shapes. One figure, the
Trapezoid, is 1250 feet long; equal to
the height of the Empire State
Building. The figures have
survived because they are
located in a nearly windless
desert that is so dry that it
averages just 20 minutes
of rainfall per year.
