Founded by monks as an isolated monastery in the late fourth century, Mogao evolved into a spiritual and artistic mecca renowned throughout China and central Asia. Here, in some five hundred caves carved into rock cliffs at the edge of the Gobi Desert, was preserved the pageantry of one thousand years - miles of wall paintings, more than two thousand statues, magnificent works on silk and paper, and tens of thousands of ancient manuscripts."

It also describes the long-term collaboration between the Getty Conservation Institute and Chinese authorities to preserve the Mogao shrines."--Jacket." ;
