Beijing's Subway (Metro) Art

LINE 2 – Xingong (新宫)

‘Ancient echo’, a stone mosaic which can be found on the southbound platform, and ‘South of Autumn’ which can be found on the northbound platform, depicts ancient rock paintings in the Yuan dynasty Daxing royal garden.

There are flowers, trees, goats, wild boars and turtles, not to mention men with spears and bows and arrows.

Unfortunately a lot of the scenes are in a dull pink colour which all but lose themselves in the surroundings, and few people stop to look at them.
