Pepek's, actually. I can't stop! I am addicted to Orion! And look here: Up in the top right corner there's a greenish bird, a sparrow, I think. Across from him, sits Orion, himself, or--my first thought--Poseidon. Or maybe, Moses, as Michaelangelo saw him in marble, seated and bearded. Maybe God Himself.
Cosmic clouds and stellar winds. The young and still-forming variable star LL Orionis produces a solar wind more powerful than our own sun's. As the fast stellar wind runs into slow moving gas, a shock front is formed, like the bow-waves of a boat moving through water.
(I think it's Poseidon. He carries a 3-pronged spear....)
