Majestic 6th-century Chinese Buddhist sculpture is combined with 21st-century 3D-imaging technology in this exploration of one of the most important groups of Buddhist devotional sites in early medieval China.
A video installation, touch screens, and research kiosks enable visitors to digitally envision some of the caves as they appeared prior to their damage in the first half of the 20th century.
"Dyeing Elegance" - Father-daughter team Kuboku and Hisako Takaku produced thousands of unique designs and textile paintings using the ancient wax resist and dyeing process on obi, kimono, and screens.
