Earthworks

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.

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."
