What would cause this?

Just had the engine redone because of my cam sliding forward. They said this is how it looked before they started and I wondered what would cause that. I forgot to ask them.

One things for sure, its happening to all the cylinders/pistons. That should rule a lot of things out.

No catch can. It had 20000 miles on it. This is the second time the motor was pulled and redone.
