Beijing's Subway (Metro) Art

LINE 2 – Beijing South Railway Station (北京南站)

When you alight from the train at Beijing South Railway Station, your first thought is that you have got off at the wrong stop, and that you are really at the zoo.

Who knows... maybe they had a surplus of ideas for the Beijing Zoo station; but by the subtle use of cardboard items sticking out from the pillars, these simple pictures of animals take on a 3D effect all of their own which is a pleasure to see.

In the station hall of Beijing South Station can be found three sculptures by Shen Hongbiao:

Ganhuang grass
Yunqing horse
Black stallion
