Galaxy shaking itself to pieces
This galaxy seems very disturbed, although the source is not obvious to me. Quite spectacular though.

I agree, very disturbed.
Maybe this is how the merging galaxies look like !
Incredible pîc though
A Simbad search says that this is Mrk 334, a Seyfert 1 Galaxy with a highly active core.
cool yes MRK 0334 other ID"s IV Zw 001 UGC 00006 I am thinking possible @polar ring galaxy

also #UGC6 and #VV806 as well as #Mrk334
There is a paper about it, and it only!
3D spectroscopy of merger Seyfert galaxy Mrk 334: nuclear starburst, superwind and the circumnuclear cavern
A.A. Smirnova, A.V. Moiseev
final stage of #merger
A #wind causes #starformation area near the nucleus that is more energetic than the #Seyfert1 #AGN
They traced the path of the smaller colliding galaxy, and it punched a hole in the bigger one.
