    1. High quality photographs of the art from Dunhuang and artifacts from along the Silk Road routes. The explanations and attention to details of each artifact are represented in numerical order for each item presented in the text. Cultural, historical, and scientific information is presented when necessary and adds to the reading and viewing pleasure. I would recommend it for anyone interested in art, archaeology, the Silk Roads, China, Buddhism, and or textiles.
