You may have read about the illegally-installed public statue of Edward Snowden in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn, on April 6, 2015. Affixed atop an existing column, the statue was mounted by three anonymous artists and their helpers early in the morning, then covered and taken down by NYC Parks officials later that day. A month later, the artists released a file so anyone can make their own 3D printed version of the bust.
A model of the sculpture exactly as it appeared in the park is up on Sketchfab and printable! It has been covered by Animal New York.
