New images of Ultima Thule got New Horizons scientists to reasses the object's shape:

Still a contact binary, but they lack a model that can explain Ulitima Thule's current shape.

One pancake-like object is Atlas:

but Atlas' shape is likely due to the accumulation of debris from Saturn's rings which has "fallen downhill" to the moon's equator. Atlas is in orbit just outside of Saturn's A-ring.

This fellow is familiar, I remember him and guys like him from Art History class (iirc he is a lower level member of the political class). It was done in one of the periods of political instability.
During these times, the art became considerably less stylized and became more natural and "real". Instead of depicting people in an idealized fashion, they would be depicted far closer to their actual appearance.

Next time, astronauts will just use google maps on their [space]phone.
