Banned on Facebook 

I just got banned on Facebook for posting the above piece of classic art.

Facebook’s own Community standard specifically say:

We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures. 

Well – explain then why I got banned!

Just in case the Facebook staff are more experienced with Hello Kitty stuff – the above is a photograph of a painting by Cornelis van Haarlem from 1622.  The painting is named The Hesperides Filling the Cornucopia.
