Martin and Mary Yerbich examine "Gaea," the Beaver sculpture painted by Deborah Davis for the Bemidji Sculpture Walk, early Wednesday evening. "Gaea," which was removed last week from its location at Fourth Street Northwest and Beltrami Avenue Northwest because of concerns over its content, was replaced Tuesday evening after a unanimous vote by the Bemidji City Council.
