Weird shape radio signal

Why would a radio signal have this shape? Most seem to be point(ish) sources and I hardly see how a quasar could have that much proper motion.

NB: To the right (next huge radio source) is 3C 230 - very weird galaxy but very cool

At a guess, its a compact central source with short jets either side.

Seems reasonable. Still weird imo - never seen jets like these

Please don’t judge the jets, this point source is at least trying you know?…

Seems it may be a giant radio quasar (GRQ)

My bad I’m sure it has a very nice personality
