Chinese online users were amazed at the sight of an unknown resident in Beijing who created an impressive pattern of concentric rectangles on a playground after snow blanketed the city on Sunday last week.
Photos posted by a Weibo user, @Bolinyoujia, show the man, walking alone inside a basketball court, starting at the edges and gradually working his way to the center, until he finally finished.
In the last photo, the man was nowhere to be found, but the pattern appears to remain untouched. This has caused some to wonder how he managed to get out.
While the man’s identity remains unknown, online users are making guesses on Weibo on why he did it.
“He looks so lonely,” said @Shenshuiyouyou.
“People may think he walked on the snow, but only he himself knows that it was loneliness he walked on,” said @Feizhumingshirenyaozheng.
