CG4 in Puppis: The hand that grabs the galaxy?

Well not really... These two objects are not even related and are separated by 118 Million light years. The galaxy on top is ESO 257-19 a Spiral Galaxy that appears smaller but in fact it is far larger that Cometary Globule CG4. Nevertheless both objects are showing a curious picture which can only be seen from the Earth perspective surrounded by a kind of dusty background...
