These incredible works of art were created by the original Nazca people.
They dug trenches into the ground for different purposes, such as irrigation.
As they dug their way to success they decided to make figures of the animals native to their region, like birds, fish, llamas, jaguars, monkeys,and even humans.
Come check out the craftsmanship and expertise put into these designs with an aerial view in a chopper or biplane.
