THE image of a woman in a skimpy bikini painted on an Ekka ride was covered up after the Queensland director of the Australian Christian Lobby slammed it as inappropriate for children.
The mural image was featured on the Rip Tide attraction located in the children's rides section of the showgrounds, off St Paul's Terrace.
What else is making news today:
The ACL's Wendy Francis started a change.org petition on Saturday after being alerted to the image of a busty blonde woman with only thin strips of pink fabric covering her nipples.
"If this image was in an adult workplace it would be deemed as sexual harassment and removed," Ms Francis wrote on the petition.
"Our children's innocence should not be compromised by attending the Brisbane Ekka - one of the highlights of the year for many families. Sexual imagery is inappropriate here.
