The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs, they are hundreds of individual figures and range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, llamas, and lizards. The Nazca Culture flourished between 300 BCE and 800 AD. Living in arid deserts they mastered the art of water management, the underground aqueducts they made still function for the proof of its efficacy.
" Land art is to be understood as an artistic protest against the perceived artificiality, plastic aesthetics and ruthless commercialization of art at the end of the 1960s in America. Exponents of land art rejected the museum or gallery as the setting of artistic activity and developed monumental landscape projects which were beyond the reach of traditional transportable sculpture and the commercial art market."
