The Nasca plains of Peru and their fantastical earth drawings, are mystical in origin and express the shamanic beliefs of the indigenous peoples. The Thunderbird expresses the same meanings as previously written about our other earrings - that of life-giver. Here there is a white spot on the body of the Thunderbird. This represents the star X-1, which is thought to have been a nova and is central to the myths that a meteorite which fell to earth in Peru was actually a flaming egg carried by this Thunderbird. This was a gift from their gods to the peoples of Peru. They are hand painted, have silver ear hooks and measure 83mm long and 27mm wide.
