Heart Nebula closeup

I started out doing a Heart of the Heart image and discovered what might be a great Halloween Mask design.  A bear, a hound, a wolf, or something else?  What do you see?
 
Tight view of the left ventricle of the Heart Nebula!  Last winter I shot the heart and soul nebulae together at 385mm. This is my first close-up view inside the heart :>)

I tried a stent at naming, but was all a flutter. My efforts were in vein. I am just a blood klutz.
