I'd already read this here, http://funni.ly/SkqF8j as "A perfectly horrifying example of how not to restore a painting of Jesus."

Reading a far more in-depth article of it, however, didn't make it any less terrible... the impression I got from the article was that it took the church a while to notice.

It would have taken an additional 2 years of water damage in the church to reduce the painting to what only took this woman a few hours. Remarkable.

There is an online movement of people now how want the painting left as it is now. The descendants of the original artist is looking to undo the damage to the painting.
