Rescued a 2,000 years old cat figure painted on the hill in Peru Desert

A big news! A picture was painted on a hill in Peru Desert.

It was as if someone had scratched the crooked hand of his childhood. The picture is nothing but a cat. But it has a couple of thousand years of history involved. Yes, that’s what happened on a hill in Peru’s Nazca Line. A cat was drawn by the people of that era in a giant picture about 27 meters long. And recently that picture came up in the form of a mountain climbing project.

There are many examples of cats in literature, art or sculpture. Its specimens have been found since ancient times. But if that history is more than 2,000 years old, then it is really surprising. However, archaeologists estimate that the cat was painted between 200 and 150 BC. The Paracas era was going on in Peru then. One of the features of the Peruvians of this period was the painting of various types of pictures on the mountain.

Patterns of multiple works of art from the Paracas era have already been found on several hills along the Nazca Line. The UNESCO WorldC Heritage Site was also honored. However, no picture has been seen on this hill before. Archaeologists estimate that the steep slopes of the mountain were eroded, making the image almost obscure. Moreover, there was no easy way to climb the mountain. And so history has remained invisible.
