Is Banksy a Mets fan? New street art surfaces near Citi Field in Queens

Famed U.K. street artist Banksy struck again Tuesday with his latest piece of street art, "Everything but the kitchen Sphinx." The sculpture, made out of smashed cinder blocks, is "a 1/36 scale replica of the great Sphinx of Giza." It can be found near the mechanic shops in Willets Point, Queens, mere blocks away from Citi Field, the home of the Mets.

Banksy has spent the last month in New York City as a part of his "Better Out Than In" residency, through which his artwork mysteriously pops up overnight throughout the five boroughs.

The Great Sphinx of Giza faces the rising sun in Egypt. There's no way of knowing if Banksy's a baseball fan, but the fact that the sphinx faces Citi Field has to be a good omen, right?
