If you cannot make it to Dunhuang to see the spectacular Mogao caves on the ancient Silk Road dating from the 4th to 14th centuries – then you should go to the Getty and see rare treasures found in the famous caves together with full size replicas of three of the caves. This is a cooperation between  the Getty Conservation Institute and  Dunhuang Academy together with several other American and Chinese cultural institutions. The Mogao caves are important because they document  the earliest evidence we have of how Buddhism travelled with monks, scholars and merchants to China and beyond.

Cheers,

Elisabeth and Natasha
