This is how a church in Ohio looked prior to a post Vatican II wreckovation that wasn’t horrible, but a wreck nonetheless less:
After: The the post Vatican II wreckovation came that wasn’t horrible but the magnificent reredos and pre-Vatican II altar were removed and presumably destroyed:
After/After: Then sanity and money returned and we have this beautiful restoration, but with that all corrupting fly in the ointment. More on that below the photo:
I suspect the added reredos is a new creation but based upon the original unless they stored the original in the basement, which I highly doubt. The major fly in the ointment, though, is that the new reredos/alar is too tall and hides the painting or mural of the crucifixion scene above it. That is not the case with the pre-Vatican II look! Why create something new and not measure its height properly????
They could have omitted the attached high altar, lowered the reredos which would make the free standing altar look as though it and the reredos are one unit.
Maybe for the future an altar railing could be restored that would help.
But overall, I would say that the first renovation could have been much worse and isn’t horrible although the high altar/reredos were removed and the altar railing—destructive and thus deserving the name wreckovation and an act of “desecration” against art.
The after/after is nice, but the major mistake or fly in the ointment is that the new reredos hides the crucifixion painting. That should not have happened!
