    So the gravity lens is what’s warping what should be the relatively straight line of that galaxy?

    Are galaxies in straight lines?

    Gravity lens warps everything around the main gravity source into a circle, kind of like a concave lens. It allows us to see ‘around’ large wells, but the curvature evident in the photograph probably has more less obvious evidence backing up the presence of a very massive object there.
