... Art restoration gone horribly wrong."The leftmost image is how the painting looked two years ago; the middle image is how it looked in July, when it was photographed for a catalog of regional religious art. The image on right is how it looked when the Centro went to check it out on August 6th after receiving the donation.

I know it's just a makeover but at least it's a small recognition that the thing is ugly and looks more like Mussolini than Bl. John Paul II.
