Lith Orbiting Artifact 1

Really channeling my inner 70s scifi artist here. What is that mysterious artifact in orbit? A note on the process: This image contains hand painted elements, photo elements, 3d elements, and generative AI elements. For the AI portion, a personal painting was fed to the AI as an image prompt, producing variations, then I extracted elements of the variations as photobash parts, rearranging them with photo and 3D elements produced in 3dsmax and painting over top using Photoshop to create the final image.
