VANCOUVER -- A statue that was beheaded by vandals two months ago in Vancouver is whole again.

Workers placed a new head Tuesday on the 10-foot tall Wendy Rose statue overlooking the Columbia River.

The Columbian reports the original head and the vandals who took it in May have not been found.

The Wendy Rose name is a reference to Rosie the Riveter, symbol of women who worked in shipyards in Vancouver and elsewhere during World War II.

The statue stands along Vancouver's Waterfront Renaissance Trail.
