    A New Jersey dentist has resurrected a racy Easter display that was destroyed last week by a neighbor who had called it "disgusting." 

    Wayne Gangi spent the weekend putting the lingerie-clad mannequins back in place outside his Clifton office. He also added some male mannequins after hearing complaints that his previous display only included women. 

    The initial display featured five mannequins dressed in lingerie, all holding Easter baskets and surrounded by Easter eggs. It had drawn mixed reviews from neighbors, as well as passersby who stopped to take photos. 

    A news crew was filming the display last week when 37-year-old Desiree Mozek took it down with some garden shears.
