The Nazca drawings are made by the nazca people around 500AD. There are many theories about why and how they created these drawings, but no one knows for sure. Different theories include astrology, worshiping of the gods, extraterrestrials, or the mapping of underground waterflow. There are also some clues that the drawings are connected to Easter Island, the Giza pyramids and several buddha temples.
One thing is certain, it is incredible that drawings on this scale have been made
such a long time ago and the fact that they are still preserved for us to see and enjoy.
