Man turns a scan of his butt into a beautiful map

Butts are a literal work of art—just ask Imgur user “PaulChanel,” who turned a scan of his rear end into a cool, old-school map.

PaulChanel, a disabled veteran, has to get a scan whenever he needs a new wheelchair or a new seat cushion. Upon getting his first scan, he sent it over to U.K. artist  David Atkinson, owner of Hand Made Maps, and had Atkinson reimagine it as a piece of art.

Ultimately, PaulChanel’s butt scan became “The Island of Gravelous Butticus,” in honor of his nickname, Gravel. As you can see, parts of “Gravelous Butticus” are given fitting names: there’s “Left Cheek” and “Right Cheek”; “The Grotto of Love”; and “The Port of No Entry.”

As any proud owner of a map of their own butt would do, PaulChanel framed the piece, so now it looks even cooler than it already did.
