ANACONDA (THE AMAZON LINES)

OLYMPIC ACTIVIST SIGNATURE IN THE AMAZON FOREST (THE AMAZON LINES)
I read that in Ancient Greece when they held the Olympics, they also had art competitions in it, not only athletics. How many of the athletes present in Rio are concerned about the Amazon? It has but become an ego tripping search for breaking records, getting a medal, and a big wad of dollars....Are there any activists athletes for the arts and the Mother Earth and why don't they express it?
THE DOG (THE NIPPON LINES IN THE AMAZON)
Japan has got much of the hardwood from the Amazon since the 80s or 70s. Mahogany for chop sticks which they throw away after one time use....and furniture. It occurred to me of how they could chop trees down in a calligraphic way that would leave lines like the Nazca Lines from Peru. It looks like a dog, jut like the Nazca lines represent 'totemic' animals?
