Update on the N*de Cover Controversy

Australia -- In a split decision, the Classification Board reviewing the art magazine which showed Olympia aged 6 on the cover, has given an unrestricted M rating.

This means it can be sold to persons over the age of 15.

The minority wanted to ban sales entirely but couldn't decide which of the images to ban -- in addition to the controversial cover, there are images inside.

The photo above shows Olympia, now 11 and her family (all dressed and looking quite "normal"), with the controversial picture behind them. Her father is an art critic and her mother is the photographer who took the picture.
