[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the amazing Chauchilla Cemetery, bodies from the ancient Nasca people were preserved by natural mummification in the arid climate.

Through their habit of burying their people, this Culture left to us mummies, ceramics, colorful textiles, skull and devices, practically untouched.

Chauchilla is about 30 km from Nasca city and it impresses by the quantity of mummies still available for visiting.

Very nice composition and POV. The lighting is perfect and you captured it very well. The grin on the mummy's face is awkwardly spooky.

Thanks for sharing.
