File - In this Friday, May 18, 2012 file photo a visitor to the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg holds his hands over what could be a codpiece accentuating the genitals on a painting entitled "The Spear" depicting President Jacob Zuma, by South African artist Brett Murray. South Africa’s Film and Publication Board on Wednesday Oct. 10 2012, declassified the painting, which outraged supporters of Zuma when it was displayed, is no longer deemed offense to public taste.
