The Cross-like Nebula?

A few weeks ago, I saw an image online of a neb­u­la (which I’m pre­sum­ing was tak­en with the HST). The inter­est­ing thing about this neb­u­la was that it was shaped like a cross, and the clouds among the cross formed a very dis­tinct shape, that of a man’s silhouette.

I remem­ber being awestruck at the image as the heav­ens declared before me not only the glo­ry but the sac­ri­fice of God.

I should have book­marked it. But now I can’t find it. It isn’t in any Hub­ble image archives I can find. It isn’t on NASA’s image of the day site. It isn’t on the Wikipedi­a’s image of the day archives.

I’ve searched Google, Google Images, Google Blog Search, Google News, World­Net­Dai­ly, and Answers in Gen­e­sis for any men­tion of this image, and I can find none.

The image was noth­ing short of amaz­ing, as far as I’m con­cerned, and I can­not fig­ure out what I am doing wrong in try­ing to find the image.

Sure­ly they (who­ev­er “they” were when I found the image!) would­n’t have post­ed it and then removed it. What is there to hide? Noth­ing wrong with the heav­ens unde­ni­able scream­ing out the sacrafice of the Cru­ci­fix­ion, after all.

So, I’m either imag­in­ing that I saw this image, it exists and I just can’t find it, or it exists and it has been pulled offline.

Do any of you know what image I’m talk­ing about? I found many “cross” neb­u­lae images, but none which had the sil­hou­ette of a man on it.
