Ste. Anne des Pins church baby Jesus statue with mismatched head

[A photo of a statue of Mary holding the baby Jesus. Most of the statue is made of white stone in the classic Roman style, but the head of the baby Jesus is in bright orange, crudely sculpted clay - the style and proportions are wildly mismatched. Also, the head is deformed by melting in the rain, and orange stains are running down the front.]

Jesus Christ, what the hell is that thing?
