You just posted what is generally believed to be the position of the WMF.
You did not answer the question. What picture is referred to? Where are the
discussions about this picture? Is this the picture believed to be the bard
as he really looked like ??
If this is indeed the picture that is talked about, I would love to know the
motivation for its deletion. I also seem to remember that it was a featured
picture on the English Wikipedia...
