"In this book, there are pictures and detailed information about some 238 items of Dunhuang cultural relics, including the Dunhuang Murals, colour statues, and silk paintings. They are typical of the Dunhuang arts of different periods in history. We can see aesthetical approaches of different ethnic groups from their distinctive styles and the exceptional artistry they represent. For each of the items, we have prepared the original introduction and a special report. Pictures of some unique items are enlarged partly so as to help us grasp their romantic charm. Therefore, this book is of importance to academic studies and research work. With its help, we can improve our research work and studies on this subject and fully appreciate the Dunhuang arts." excerpt from the preface.
