A butcher shop in a coastal Australian town has caused a bit of a stir over a photo posted on Facebook. 

The photo, seen above, shows a nude model with the different cuts of meat marked on her body, with her modesty arfully covered by leaves. It was taken in Lancelin, a town north of Perth. 

The photographer who took the picture, North Coast Times employee Kym Illman, said this concept had been the butcher's - Darren Gerrand's - idea, as he wanted to promote his business/

The model, who works in fine-art, agreed to the idea. 

Since being posted online, it's garnered a mixed response with praise and condemnation alike, having reached over 40,000 people.
