The distortion in the image around it fits into a square or rectangle shape so I am thinking they are not from the same photo. Perhaps the digital light capture on your camera messed up. Generally I can run a 3d mesh check on these to check for fakes I am not accusing you but I am saying this spot does not conform to the pix-elation in the rest of the image. Possible data corruption suspected
First, the JPEG algorithms first cuts up an image in separate blocks of 8×8 pixels. The compression algorithm is calculated for each separate block, which explains why these blocks or groups of blocks become visible when too much compression is applied.

The square shape is the result of jpg compression. Unavoidable.
Look at the chimney.

I agree with Phage's take, does look similar, but I would rather stick with my own gesture. It's a flying turtle in it's shell.
