The Nazca Lines: The Spider

The Spider, Friday, March 25, 2005, 9 AM.


 

 

The Nazca Spider is particularly fascinating. It matches a real spider inserted in a network of straight lines. It measures some 150 feet in length formed by one continuous line. The mound at the left is part of the border of a huge trapezoid. What is remarkable about this drawing is that it is a member of a spider genus known as Ricinulei which is found only living beyond the reach of sunlight in the Amazon rainforest.
