(BLOOMINGTON) - A landmark sculpture is back in place at Indiana University after one its statues had storm damage repaired.

The life-sized nude Adam and Eve bronze statues have been returned to their traditional spot on the edge of Dunn's Woods on the Bloomington campus.

The statues were removed last summer because a tree fell on Adam during a May 2011 storm, causing a large dent to its head, a broken ankle and platform damage.

IU art curator Sherry Rouse says the Eve statue wasn't damages but was removed for cleaning so it would match the repaired Adam.

The artwork titled "The Space Between: Adam and Eve" was created in the late 1960s by IU professor Jean Paul Darriau who died in 2006.
