Monkey Head Nebula

In this painting I tried to reproduce the Monkey Head Nebula, registrered as NGC2174 amid the dust of cosmic gases and stars. It seems to move slowly against a dark blue background, while reflecting white light in its contours that most resemble white ligaments accompanied by brown gas dust. I wanted to give the feeling of depth and movement.
