Iron Man Nazi Budda.

  Ancient folks sought out meteors because of their nickel and iron rich content.  This one was made into a budda carving with a swastika on his chest.  The Nazis actually collected it, just like Indy said they did.

  The swastika graphic was used centuries before the Nazis picked it up.  I've seen it on Anasazi rock art in the American Southwest, so no particular shock there.

The inuit trekked over and cut chunks off a Greenland meteorite for years.
