The Aliens have Landed

Nasca lines - the astronaut


The picture above features "the astronaut"... a design figure drawn in the ground on the hillside in de Nasca-desert (Pampa de San José) by the pre-inca culture of Nasca. Nobody knows the mystery of these lines... How did they drawn them...what technique and why? Maria Reiche, a German who escaped Nazi-Germany spent her whole life (1946 - 1998) discovering them and unveiling parts of their mystery. Were the lines an astronomical calender? Was it designed to help organize planting and harvesting? Do the lines connect sacred places , are they pathways leading to sacred places, the sources of underground water in the desert? Do they predict the coming of rains?
Well, i think the astronaut is a really strange one...he's not like the other lines, if you look at the spider, kolibri, brid...the astronaut is WAVING. Towards the heavens. So, my theory: he's welcoming the Aliens that landed there some centuries ago...

The Aliens have landed

The same enigma is the figure above. This "tree" is a huge design on a hillside somewhere on an island just outside the Paracas Bay, you encounter it on your way to the national wildlife reserve of Paracas: the Ballestas Island where you can have a real life national geographic experience, some say: the Aliens made it, others claim it's a navigation tool for Pirates that came along the shore these early wild days. Whatever it is...it's fascinating...

Fascinerend!
Niet de eerste keer dat ik deze tekeningen zie, ze blijven mij boeien.
