First thing to note is the large size of these figures. So, one of the smaller pieces — the image of a spider — has a diameter of about 45 meters, while the length of the "Anhinga" — more than 250 meters. Reaching view of a figure from the ground and realize that it is impossible. To do this, or take a couple hundred feet above the ground, or going with a compass and tape measure along the lines of the drawing and consistently putting on a piece of paper all of its twists and turns, make a scaled-down plan, and it will already know "who is who".
All the figures are extremely simplified. It is not a picture of any specific animals and their graphics. In this connection is not always possible to confidently determine which animal species depicted. For example, one image in the literature as the "Condor", although beak of this bird shows a more like a stork.
Another picture of what is called "lizard", the "crocodile". "Anhinga" is different from a real prototype (birds with the same name, living in India) is three times longer neck, and only the beak of a length as in this image, no one has a single bird in the world. The "pillars" are depicted ears (?) And so on. More than any other "unlucky" pattern, which is called the "octopus", the "seaweed", the "tree."
At one time it was a lot of talk about a single image, for some of biologists decided that this — the image of a spider of the genus ritsinuleya. These tiny spiders live in the forest floor in the Amazon jungle and feature a curious anatomical detail: their copulatory organ in males is located at the foot of (he, incidentally, can be seen only with a magnifying glass). But it seems to me, with respect to this image naskanskogo biologist was wrong, for such a "copulatory organs" are also available on other images, for example, the "hummingbird" and "monkey." It is quite clear that it — not the image of an organ of animal and graphic detail, with the help of which figure is associated with a network of lines on the surface of the pampa.
Among the images across not similar to any kind of animal. An example is a shapeless bag with two spikes in the form of human hands, one hand-digits, and the second — tetradigitate. However, M. Scholten somehow managed to be recognized in this figure … monkey sitting (!) According to M. Reiche, dominated by images of drawings of birds (there are 18), followed by marine life.
All figures are made of one continuous line that never crosses itself, and by doing all the myriad twists and turns back to the starting point, but, as a rule, are not connected with it, and with a system of lines or pads on the ground. Striking a perfect alignment curves, the highest harmony drawings, some of their "mathematical" correct and complete lack of any emotional color images. Not so incidentally, J. Hawkins put about naskanskih images: "Life in Hell frozen math!" And Kiev researcher Nazca AT Belokon says that computer programmers, which it does not explain what it is, showed naskanskie pictures, unanimously declared "This is drawn plotter!"
