A coffin-making company has created a calendar featuring topless models posing next to its caskets to drum up business.

The Polish firm has reportedly angered the Catholic Church with its publicity stunt, according to Reuters.

The news agency claims that one image in the 2013 calendar features a blonde woman wearing a thong with a snake around her neck, lying on a coffin.

Zbigniew Lindner, the owner of the coffin company, said: "We wanted to show that a coffin isn't a religious symbol. It's a product. Why are people afraid of coffins and not of business suits, cosmetics or jewellery?"

He added: "My son had the idea of creating the company's calendar... so that we could show something half-serious, colourful, beautiful; the beauty of Polish girls and the beauty of our coffins."

Reuters also claims that a spokesman for the Catholic Church has said that "human death should be treated with solemnity and not mixed up with sex".

The calendar is currently on sale on the company's website, and any orders placed come with a free keyring in the shape of a coffin.
