Hello JLConawayII and welcome to the Zoo.  IMHO that's an AGN but no Voorwerpje that I can see.
Happy hunting! ;D

Thanks for the welcome.  Yeah I'll agree with your assessment on that galaxy.  I saw purple junk above and below the nucleus, so I figured I would post it as a "maybe".  I had a couple more posted that I took down, since upon further evaluation and a bit of helpful info from the community, they clearly were not examples of this phenomenon.  I am curious to hear what you think of this one:

The purple blobs look like they might be in the ring itself, but tbh I don't really know what to make of it.

All I can tell you is that Voorwerpjes look more ethereal, not like solid blobs like those on this image.  Bill Keel, our mentor in Voorwerpjes usually takes a look at this thread, let's hope he sees it and comments on it.

When I see that purple colour, I think of lensed galaxies.
Quote from: Zooite guide to strong gravitational lenses

The "purple"  blob is a star forming galaxy which has been lensed.
It is far away (z=0.779), and should be red.
But it is a star-forming galaxy with UV light, which has been redshifted into blue light.
Most of the ordinary light is still present, though redshifted into red light.
Red + blue  = magenta (though people call it purple).

Pity there's no spectra for this one, seems like a good candidate for a  Voowerpje.
