Seen from this perspective (and after the modifications) it could resemble a kind of structure, true. However, the filter applied by the OP inbetween

In reality, that particular section looks more like compression artifacts (in the original image). My guess would by that the OP applied a kind of
'smart blur' filter, perhaps something with edge-detection?
