The Nazca lines are truly strange monuments to a deceased society. No one is sure what the purpose of these surreal lines could have possibly been. The ancient people who created these lines certainly could not have admired them from the air, but aerial views via helicopter or jet are the only way to admire these ancient creations. On the ground, they look like haphazard piles and creations. From the air, one can see depictions of giant birds with outstretched wings, animals, and even people. This has led to widespread speculation about the purpose of these lines, but no one can truly ever know.
