The birds in front of the pelicans are called Peruvian Booby.

The figure is called "El Candelabro". Nobody knows who made the drawing. There are many theories. One theory is that the Nazca people made ​​the drawing. But some people believe it is a brand of pirates.

Wondering if these are part of the Nazca drawings in the background?
