The designs were created more than a millennium ago by representatives of the Nazca culture and are believed to have ritual purposes. However, many of the recently found drawings could also belong to cultures earlier than those of Nazca, known as Paracas and Topará, dating back to 500 BC.

"This means a tradition of more than a thousand years preceding the famous geoglyphs of Nazca culture, which opens the door to new hypotheses about its function and meaning," says Johny Isla, archaeologist of the Ministry of Culture of Peru, who is responsible for conservation of the famous Nazca lines. These ancient peoples "drew" images of warriors, animals, as well as different ornamental lines, removing the upper layer of reddish stones of the desert, exposing a lighter ground.

However, scientists are still wondering how they managed to make drawings without being able to see them from the sky. The fact that only the latest drawings have been discovered is due to the fact that many of them are not visible from the ground and can only be detected by the use of drones with high resolution cameras.
