When getting to know someone, what's under the surface can be far more interesting and beautiful than the facade they show. And so it is with the walls and ceiling at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Bowling Green.
The church, through a team of restoration artists, is stripping away five layers of paint to reveal the original mural in the sanctuary from when the church was built in 1924. This is one part of a larger renovation and improvement project. CLICK HERE TO WATCH VIDEO
The season of Lent is beginning for many Christian churches, which is also a time when people of faith dare to strip away surface obstacles to become closer to their underlying faith. Thus, this is also an appropriate time for the restoration,
The original artist was Felix Lieftuchter, the same man who created the noted murals in Holy Rosary Cathedral in Toledo.
"He is considered a significant artist," said Father Mark Davis, pastor of the church.
He explained the mural, done much in the style of a fresco, was painted over around 1968. The pastor said they are not sure for all the reasons but cited the possibility of the inability at the time to restore some damaged areas of the mural, as well as the era in post-Vatican II, when there was an emphasis more on the altar and simplicity within the church.
"Those are just two of our guesses in this mystery," Davis said.
