'Kissing statue' back in Sarasota

Posted: Updated:
SARASOTA (FOX 13) -

A larger than life piece of art is back home in Sarasota.

The Unconditional Surrender statue was put back in place along the downtown waterfront Tuesday morning.

It's a replica of the iconic photo snapped in Times Square of the sailor kissing a nurse at the end of World War II.

The statue was badly damaged earlier this year when a car crashed into it. It was sent to New Jersey for repairs.

Superstorm Sandy delayed the work, but it's back home now.
