Ceci N'est Pas Un Galaxy...

...as Magritte was font of saying :

Magritte painted the pipe "This is not a pipe" (Ceci n'est pas une pipe), which seems a contradiction, but is actually true: the painting is not a pipe, it is an image of a pipe. (In his book This Is Not a Pipe French philosopher and critic Michel Foucault discusses the painting and its paradox.) (((copied from wikipedia)))
But it looks darn close I've heard, this full res version of Hubble's interpretation of it.
