This story has legs... Or these legs have a story!

Without a doubt, Beijing is one of the most fascinating places to live. The sights, the sounds, the smells!

But coming across these brightly decorated mannequin legs outside the subway station next to the office was certainly one of those "Now you don't see that every day" moments.

But the question begged: Where did they come from? Who was the creative installation artist who decided that the Babaoshan Subway station needed a little colour?

Apart from becoming something of a hit on Facebook, by the next day the legs had migrated to the roof, providing a very welcome splash of vivid - almost psychodelic - colour to the daily commute to CRI (China Radio International), our place of employment that I like to refer to as 'the fool factory'.

But alas, not everyone shares my enthusiasm for the avant-garde. On Thursday morning a local council worker was spotted making off with the now famous legs, only to park them unceremoniously behind the station.

Stay tuned for more updates on the hottest pair of legs in Babaoshan.
