Mogao Grottoes go digital

Statues and wall paintings are showed on a giant spherical screen at the digital center of the Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang city, Northwest China’s Gansu province. The center shows two films, each of 20 minutes duration, to show the history and culture of the site as well as a detailed introduction to the Buddhist art treasures in seven typical caves. The screen, which is 500 square meters in size, vividly and clearly shows the murals and sculptures, which span a thousand years of Buddhist art, backed by amazing sound effects.
