The Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes were inscribed on the World Heritage List by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1987. Cultural relics found in the Dunhuang Grottoes, including beautiful murals, colorful statues, detailed silk paintings and illustrations of magnificent architecture demonstrate the originality, artistry, and wisdom of the ancient Chinese artists who created them. Examination of these valuable pieces of work can provide us with a better understanding of ancient Chinese politics, economy, culture and religion, as well as of the relationships that existed between various ethnic groups and between peoples in the East and West in ancient China

The translations presented in this book comprise mainly Buddhist history, legends and stories. 130 Buddhist legends behind the unparalleled paintings found on the cave walls at the fabled Silk Road crossroads in Northwest China. Extensive color plates bring these legends to life. The 135 vivid and beautiful mural pictures were provided by Dunhuang Cultural Center. This English version, Fascinating Mural Stories From Dunhuang Grottoes, is an exquisite picture album containing colorful images that promise to be a feast for the reader's eyes.
