Gigante de Atacama

Although there are more than 5,000 geoglyphs in the Atacama, this one is the most iconic. The Gigante de Atacama is an 86-meter depiction of a giant man (or perhaps Pachamama) that looks like a computer-game character from the 1980s. Of course, this geoglyph is far older—most likely dating back to 900 AD—and was created by the area's indigenous peoples.
