Catholic church slams Polish coffin maker's nude women calendar
London, Nov 8 (ANI): A Polish coffin company has angered the Catholic church by trying to boost their sales with a calendar depicting naked models posing next to its caskets.
The marketing ploy features semi-naked women in provocative poses on and next to coffins made by company Lindner, the Daily Mail reported.
The Catholic church has condemned the calendar saying human death should be respected and not mixed with sex.
One image from the 2013 edition of the calendar sees a young woman with a snake covering her breasts, as she reclines on a coffin.
In another, a woman wearing a crimson corset is depicted pulling out the heart of a man lying on a casket.
"My son had the idea of creating the company's calendar so that we could show something half-serious, colorful, beautiful; the beauty of Polish girls and the beauty of our coffins," Zbigniew Lindner, the firm's owner said.
"We wanted to show that a coffin isn't a religious symbol. Its a product.
"Why are people afraid of coffins and not of business suits, cosmetics or jewelry?" Lindner said.
The calendar is for sale on the company's website, and each customer receives a complementary key ring in the shape of a coffin. (ANI)
