NEW YORK — The mysterious artists who planted a bust of Edward Snowden on a Revolutionary War monument in a New York City park want the sculpture back.

The artists’ lawyer, Ronald Kuby, sent police a letter Tuesday demanding the return of the fiberglass-reinforced cement likeness of the former National Security Agency secret-leaker.

The piece appeared overnight April 6 on a memorial in Fort Greene Park. It was removed hours later.

Police say they’re holding it while investigating. Deputy Chief Kim Royster wouldn’t comment on the status of the probe but notes that police may return confiscated property after investigations.

Kuby wouldn’t identify his clients, citing the police investigation.

They say in a statement that returning the statue would honor New York’s free-thinking history.

A Manhattan gallery hopes to display the piece.
