China-heritage-archaeology-religion-Moga

China-heritage-archaeology-religion-Mogaoby Dan Martin In the cool gloom of a sandstone cavern a restorer painstakingly applies a liquid bonding agent with a syringe to stabilise a crumbling, 1,000-year-old Buddhist fresco in the Mogao Grottoes complex in remote Gansu province in northwestern China 24 October 2007. Among the world's greatest collections of Buddhist art, the cave frescoes were created beginning 1,650 years ago as eternal tributes to Buddha but are today fading away from age, tourist pressures and climate change.
