'The Spear,' a controversial painting of Jacob Zuma by South African artist Brett Murray, was defaced on March 21. Last week Zuma and the African National Congress took legal action against the Goodman gallery where the painting was shown, and the City Press newspaper for reproducing the painting online, but later dropped the charges. Zuma claimed the painting was an 'undignified depiction of my personality.' Photo: youtube user Badgerface2012
