The owl-man  or astronaut (98 feet high), Friday, March 25, 2005, 9 AM.
One of its hands points to the sky, another to the ground.

"Another kind of figures is found on steep slopes (see the owl-man figure). From the ground they are practically unrecognizable." In the owl-man "The study of the straight lines beside it could perhaps throw light on its significance. The owl-man appears also in Peruvian pottery. Figures on slopes may be more primitive because of the steepness of the incline, or else they could belong to an earlier cultural level." Maria Reiche, Mystery on the desert.
