Banksy Creates a Tiny Replica of The Great Sphinx Of Giza In Queens

What did Banksy’s month-long show, “Bet­ter Out than In,” bring today? Why noth­ing oth­er than a minia­ture ver­sion of The Great Sphinx of Giza. Accord­ing to the street artist’s web site, the 22nd install­ment in the exhi­bi­tion is a “1/36 scale repli­ca of the great Sphinx of Giza made from smashed cin­derblocks.” And it comes with the warn­ing, “You’re advised not to drink the repli­ca Arab spring water.”


You can fol­low Bet­ter Out than In on Insta­gram through the end of Octo­ber.
