Banksy Replicates the Great Sphinx of Giza for “Better Out Than In”
Today, British vigilante artist Banksy invaded Queens, New York to replicate the Great Sphinx of Giza. The theme of “Better Out Than In” is reiterated once again with the artist providing yet another piece of street-set art while taking a break from the normalcy of your prototypical gallery viewing. A 1/36 scale replica, the miniature Sphinx was constructed from smashed cinderblocks. With typical Banksy wit, he advises the viewers not to drink the replica Arab spring water. “Better Out Than In” will continue through the end of the month.
