Photographer's Note

Nazca Lines. Here is the Hummingbird drawing, wich is 180m. long.
"Occasional travelers through Nazca had doubtless noticed the strange and obviously artificial lines in the desert floor, but the lines were unimpressive and meaningless at ground level. As planes began to pass over the Nazca region, air travelers saw that some of the lines formed parts of gigantic figures whose shape could only be appreciated from the air. Aerial photographs of the region proved to be highly dramatic.
Therein lies the mystery. Why would anyone bother to make figures that could only be appreciated from the air in an era when there were no airplanes? It is well established that these drawings are at least fifteen hundred years old.
Archaeologists have developed several explanations for this: one is that the figures, probably of religious significance, were not meant to be seen as a while by human eyes; a second is that the Nazca people built balloons that allowed them to view the figures when they flew over the sites. This suggestion, while not impossible, lacks supporting evidence."

Je reste dans la s廨ie des oiseaux... Voici le dessin du colibri (lignes de Nazca) vu d'avion.
Les lignes de Nazca furent d嶰ouvertes par hasard en 1939 par l'am廨icain Paul Kosok au cours d'un survol de la r嶲ion alors qu'il travaillait sur les r廥eaux d'aqueducs. Parmi l'entrelacs de lignes g廩m彋riques de taille gigantesque qui s'y trouvent, on a identifi 18 figures animales grav嶪s dans le sol, dont un colibri, un singe, une araign嶪, un astronaute ! ...
Ces lignes se conservent depuis pr鋊 de 2 000 ans, gr歊e une absence quasi totale de pr嶰ipitations et d'廨osion 廩lienne. Elles demeurent l'une des plus grandes 幯igmes du Nouveau Monde.
Les lignes et les dessins de Nazca ont 彋 obtenus en enlevant des pierres afin de faire appara褾re le sol jaune.

Le dessin du colibri mesure 180 m鋈res de long. Pour vous rendre compte de l嶰helle, voir la photo de Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
