Looks like copper water pipes, probably had a leak there once, and wall was opened up to fix it

Is there a bathroom on other side of thoat wall. It is not uncommon to have to make hole in wall behind bathroom plumbing to fix a problem. That is usually more desirable than destroying tile or a tub surround.

Actually, behind that wall is the kitchen. The sellers said that they bought the house with that hole there. Also, the sellers redid the kitchen. The upstairs bathroom is above there though. Perhaps they has pipe problems at one time? The upstairs bathroom is redone too.

It's obviously a hole in the wall. I can't see what is in the hole. Looks like there might be some pipes. Perhaps the hole was needed to fish the pipes during a replumb.
