Over two thousand years ago the Nazca people dug grooves in the desert earth of the Peruvian pampas, tracing impressive geometric figures and stylized depictions of plants or animals. This hummingbird, measuring about 320 feet (98 m), is among eighteen different silhouettes of birds in the area, which was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1994. Beginning in the 1940s until her death in 1998, the German mathematician Maria Reiche was tirelessly involved in the recovery, maintenance, and study of these lines. Thanks in large part to her efforts, we can still admire what is thought to have constituted an astronomical calendar. The Nazca Lines, the nearby burial complex, and other important archaeological finds are threatened today by huaqueros, tomb robbers, as well as by the influx of tourists, erosion, and industrial pollution.
