The Nasca Culture in Zurich

The so-called Nasca Lines of the Nasca culture in Peru (ca. 200 BC–650 AD) is a series of enormous drawings in the sand. The exhibition on the fascinating and mysterious Nasca culture whisks visitors away to the southern part of the Andes where the Nasca culture once flourished. The Nasca left behind one of the greatest puzzles ever encountered by archaeologists: large geoglyphs, better known as the Nasca Lines. The approximately two hundred exhibits have a story to tell about everyday life in the valleys between the high ranges of the Andes in the east and the desert off the Pacific coast. The Nasca created their famous geoglyphs, ceramics and textiles.
