It's a conformal distortion of the Mandelbrot set, twisted to the right while following the shape of its main cardioid. This can easily be achieved by transforming the Mandelbrot set into the plane, shifting upwards, and transforming back:
The image on the right has been twisted just a little, such that the period-3 bulb takes the place of the period-2 one. The key idea behind this is that inverting and squaring a circle touching the inversion circle gives a cardioid.
