Peru unveils giant cat etching at famous Nazca site

Nazca cat

"Researchers suppose the cat, as the rest of the Nazca animal outlines, was made by depressions in the desert ground, w" / UNESCO World Heritage sitr, The Nazca, is known for its designs on the floor, better known as geolyphs that date back to 2,000 years ago.

The Nazca Lines are geometric shapes and animal drawings etched into the Peruvian desert 250 miles south of Lima, the capital.

Drone photography has led to several discoveries in recent years, Isla said. The lines were found to measure between 30 and 40 cm in width, according to a statement released by the Peruvian ministry of culture.

The Nazca Lines are among the top places in Peru for visit. According to the researchers, this figure was created by applying pressure to the soil, just like the other Nazca Lines. In the Paracas society's ceramics and textiles, representations of such felines were also frequent. Archaeologists and employees were working on the Mirador Natural, a lookout point in the protected site, when they began unearthing something intriguing.

Conservation work was performed, and archeologists found lines that were between 12-16 inches wide.

In fact, at the end of the trailer, Shawn says, "My songs comes on the radio and I'm like, 'Everything is about you". The Senorita crooner confesses that all the songs he's ever written have been about the former Fifth Harmony member.

The Paracas culture lived in the area from 800-100 BC and is believed to have been responsible for the Palpa Lines, which are similar to but less famous than the nearby Nazca ones.

The region has always been of interest to historians. Then, with the expansion of air travel, further artworks were discovered from above.

"And in fact, there are new ones and we will continue to find more".

"It's quite striking that we're still finding new figures, but we also know that there are more to be found", Johny Isla, Peru's chief archaeologist for the Nazca Lines, told Efe news agency. He said, "We realised the access to the look-out point ran over a geoglyph and we made a decision to alter it because it's not possible to promote access by damaging heritage". The Uffington White Horse, England's oldest geoglyph, is believed to be 3,000 years old. They were carved out of the sand on a Peruvian coastal plain and resemble both living and inanimate objects.
