Silk Road Art

We scheduled a trip to the Gansu province later this month, but a museum opened down the street showing artwork from the Mogao Grottos. It showcased art from along the silk road but mostly focused on importing the beautiful murals hidden inside the caves. In true, cave like fashion, each museum visitor was given a lantern to unveil the art.

The eyes of any sutra are the most important when painting any buddha, they are always painted last, as buddhists believe the eyes bring life | Processed with VSCO with nc preset
