Bill and Jill and Zarema all changed from yes to no. Probably we cancel. Maybe a future date.

In the southern Peruvian desert, one of the world’s greatest archaeological mysteries is waiting to be solved: the so-called Nasca Lines of the Nasca culture (ca. 200 BC–650 AD), a series of enormous drawings in the sand.

The probably most comprehensive exhibition on the fascinating as well as mysterious Nasca culture ever to be seen in Europe is at the Museum Rietberg Zurich. 'NASCA. PERU – Searching for Traces in the Desert' whisks visitors away to the southern part of the Andes where the Nasca culture (ca. ca. 200 BC – AD 650) once flourished. On the desert ground of this region in Peru the Nasca left behind one of the greatest puzzles ever encountered by archaeologists: large geoglyphs, better known as the Nasca Lines.

Who were the Nasca? How did they live? Where did the Nasca culture come from, where did it go?
The approximately two hundred exhibits have an exciting story to tell about everyday life in the fertile valleys between the high ranges of the Andes in the east and the desert off the Pacific coast. It is here, in one of the most arid places on earth, that the Nasca created their famous geoglyphs. Equally fascinating is the immensely colourful pictorial language they used to decorate their ceramics and textiles.
All the exhibits are from Peruvian collections and museums, some of them from recent archaeological excavations.

Nasca 2.0
Visitors can 'fly over' the landscape using special 3D glasses, thus getting the same view of the geoglyphs as an ancient Nasca priest with the aid of his inner eye.
