It was a isk that they were I am sure, very aware of, and I am convinced the provocation was intentional, to stir=up some publicity. They could not very well expect "the eldest daughter of catholicism" (France) to let that image go uncensored. That said, for a country that claims its secularism on high - and I applaud that, it is a rather regressive ruling. But that's just me, of course. The picture itself, though, is a true work of art, in my oh so humble opinion.
