This collection of more than 300 Dunhuang decorative designs reflects creativity and innovation in Chinese Buddhist art. The book is the result of three years’ collecting by Chang Shuhong and her students of ten types of decorative designs in the Mogao Grottoes, including architecture, murals, painted sculptures and other decorative patterns. The designs are classified into ten categories according to historical period, presenting a panoramic survey of the Dunhuang decorative patterns throughout Chinese history.
