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.
