The North American F-86 Sabre, sometimes called the Sabrejet, is a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the United States' first swept-wing fighter that could counter the swept-wing Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights in the skies of the Korean War (1950–1953), fighting some of the earliest jet-to-jet battles in history. Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in that war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces.

However, the most famous specimen belongs to Chav í n, whose nail heads are arranged horizontally and equidistant from the walls of Chav í n Temple in Hu á ntar. At present, only one remains as it is. They are called nails because the back of each sculpture head has a slender spike or structure used to fix it in the groove of the wall, just like nails. There are different shapes and sizes. About half of them are anthropomorphic, while the other half are anthropomorphic.
