In a move that reminds us of the Victorian attitude to covering nude statues and even table legs, the Federal Communications Commission in the US* is investigating complaints from American viewers of the Olympics in Greece featured statues that featured nudity.

Among these statues were Ancient Greek figures such as Satyr and Kouros – all perfectly naked (to us at PSFK)

The Games chief Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki reacted by telling the LA Times,

"As Americans are surely aware, there is great hostility in the world today to cultural dominance in which a single values system created elsewhere diminishes and degrades local cultures."
