Museum Piece MODOK
This MODOK-like relic comes courtesy of Peru's Museo Nacional de la Historia y la Cultura. The stunningly well-preserved artifact was discovered in the Peruvian highlands on the lower slopes of the Andes Mountains. Thought to be a deity of the Chuatepak people who inhabited the region in the latter part of the Iron Age, modern Peruvian folklore has it that this god, "El Organismo mental Diseñó sólo para matar" in Spanish, was able to annihilate enemies with the strength of its thoughts alone.
