Figure of a Spider: the symbol of fertility.
I visited Nasca this summer vacation, and I attempted to take pictures
of the Nasca Lines from a Cessna aircraft circling over the Nasca Plains.
I tried to do it over and over again. Finally, I captured on camera the
figure of the spider with a lot of difficulty. Eureka!
The word Nasca is associated all over the world with the huge geometrical
figures that hundreds of years ago were scratched on extensive plains of
the Peruvian coastal desert. The mysteries of the Nasca Lines remain unsolved.
Why they were made, by whom were they constructed and how were they built
have attracted the attention of thousands of people, from eager travelers
to well-known scientists, and spider-maniacs like me.
Ahhh! Words can't explain the feelings. They provoke your senses. They
are truly marvelous, and you don't need words at all. You just have to experience
As you may have guessed, I'm a spider maniac; let me tell you about
spiders. In Peru, the symbolism of spiders is associated with the rain and
fertility. For others, it could be a representation of dream. There are
so many Nasca ceramics with the drawings of arachnids on them, which were
dug up from prehistoric ruins.
