Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The author examined and mapped the Cantalloc spiral, one of the Nazca line figures, to suggest a possible method of construction. The spiral appears created to fit within the landform. If meant to be walked as a labyrinthine, it would have been difficult to determine where to enter and exit, or to even remain on path, in part because of an overlying triangular figure.
