Roger Rapp, a contemporary artist in the Denver area, discusses the structure of his acrylic painting, ‘Nazca Highland Mandala’. The painting is based upon a seldom seen geometric pattern, carved into the Peruvian landscape possibly 2,000 years ago by the Nazca Indians, who flourished in the area from 200 BC to around 600 AD. Rapp’s artwork reveals proportions of related squares of differing sizes contained in the earthwork located high above the well-known Nazca plains.
The actual Earthwork mandala that the painting is based upon can be found at 14 degrees, 38 minutes, 39 seconds South and 75 degrees, 10 minutes, 17 seconds West. Go to Google Earth and check it out!
