Tianlongshan Caves Project

Cave1-LeftWestWallThe Center for the Art of East Asia in the Department of Art History at the University of Chicago initiated the Tianlongshan Caves Project “to pursue research and digital imaging of the caves and their sculptures. The Project seeks to record and archive the sculptures and to compile data that can identify the fragments and their places of origin. In carrying this out, the Project aims to foster better understanding of the sculptural art, the history, and the meaning of the Tianlongshan Caves through creation of this website and through an exhibition of the results of the Project based on digital information.”
