Nazca spider

Nazca spider on polished granite slab

In the Nazca desert of southern Peru, there are many geoglyphs that were created about 1,500 years ago. The geoglyphs were created by moving aside the darker-colored rocks on the surface to reveal the lighter-colored soil below. Many of the geoglyphs are straight lines, but some of the geoglyphs are in the shapes of living things (biomorphs), including animals (zoomorphs) and plants (phytomorphs).

There didn’t seem to be much chance of me actually getting to Peru to see the geoglyphs so I decided to make one for myself. The Nazca spider is about 150 feet long and my spider is about 2 feet long and my spider is portable.
