With wings extended, the Nazca hummingbird hovers in ceramic images painted by hand. The Huaman Paucar Family creates a decorative plate that faithfully recreates the famous geoglyph. The mysterious figures of the Nazca Plain, located about 200 miles south of Lima, can be seen in their entirety only from the air.
