The Iron Man statue is a 24 centimeter, 10 kilogram sculpture depicting the Buddhist deity Vaiśravaṇa, made from First Civilization material. Prior to World War II, the artifact was stolen from Tibet by Adolf Hitler's SS during their search for the origins of the Aryan race.
Influenced by Abstergo Industries, the media falsely reported that the statue was made from a meteorite that crashed to the Earth 15,000 years ago. After applauding Erica Nichols for her work, Alan Rikkin ordered Laetitia England to recover the statue.
