Facebook has reversed its ban of Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy album cover from the platform, saying the artwork’s cultural significance overrides policy on images of nude children. The site had been removing posts containing the image—originally created by the designer Aubrey Powell—citing community standards, according to reports that emerged this week. The lift of the ban will come into effect in the coming days, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.
“As our community standards explain, we don’t allow nude images of children on Facebook,” a spokesperson told Ultimate Classic Rock. “But we know this a culturally significant image. Therefore, we’re restoring the posts we removed.”
