In Bolivia there are three stone geoglyphs set on the highest ridge of the Cerro Rico Mountains at an altitude of 4,360 meters (14,300 ft). They are located six kilometers (3.7 miles) apart and are visible from one another due to the clear atmosphere at this altitude. These geoglyphs were constructed with the help of 800 workers, most in traditional dress, many of whom were women carrying babies on their backs. Before the commencement of any work, a ritual animal sacrifice was conducted as part of a Pachamama ceremony to consecrate the ground and bless the creation of the geoglyphs.
