A Long Island couple says they are the owners of the mysterious bust that turned up at the East Hampton Library.

The 50-pound terra cotta head was found near where a new wing is being built.

The couple, Patrick and Janis Tooman of Sag Harbor, says they were planning construction at their home.

So their son, a contractor, put it in his truck.

He then drove to his next gig at the East Hampton Library where it was accidently unloaded.

The head was given to the Toomans as a gift from a sculptor.

The bust usually sits in their backyard.

The library has now repositioned its security cameras to prevent anyone from stealing.
