In this photo taken on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2012, visitors look at canvases banned in 1962 by Soviet leader Nikita Khruschev and now exhibited at Moscow's Manezh hall, Russia. Fifty years later, some of the banned canvases are on display again at the same Manezh hall, at a time when critics compare Khruschev's ban to recent charges against the Pussy Riot band and artists whose paintings have angered the Kremlin and Russia’s dominant Orthodox Church.
