Meteorum Aegyptius is an “artist's reconstruction” that pokes fun at alternative history and conspiracy theories claiming that the pyramids were built using alien technology. Upon impact with Earth, this meteor's architectural and landscape fragments embedded in the sands of the Sahara, forming a seed garden along the banks of the Nile from which Egyptian culture and civilization would grow.
