A Queensland council are looking to replace a 'strategically placed' bush outside an arts centre after visitors had complained of the naked 'Birth of Venus' sculpture. 

The bush had been covering the female sandstone sculpture's genitalia, which were on full display at the front entrance to the Bribie Island Community Art Centre. 

Bribie Island resident Lulu Drew was so shocked by the naked statue that she lodged a formal complaint with the Moreton Bay Regional Council after she visited the arts centre with an elderly man.

The statue has reportedly since been 'hidden' from view.
