A pain in Spain

The two photos above of a famous statue in Spain differ significantly. The statue is in the cathedral at Santiago de Compostela and is of one of the liberators of Spain from Muslim occupation. The statue originally showed the triumphant Spaniard on a horse rearing over the heads of defeated Muslims. But that has recently become "incorrect". The defeated Muslims are now covered by a bank of flowers.

Conservative Brazilian blogger Luis Afonso has the details.
