The exhibition Dunhuang - Untold Tales, Untold Riches was unveiled at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum on Nov 27.

The largest of its kind ever held in Hong Kong, the exhibition showcases nearly 120 artifacts, and unfolds chronologically to reveal numerous aspects of Dunhuang culture including religion, art, folklore, social life, East-West cultural exchange and cultural relics preservation.

The exhibits cover all of the core aspects of Dunhuang grotto art, such as replica caves, replica painted stucco statues, Buddhist script items, relics of Dunhuang, and copies of the cave murals.

Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Dunhuang Academy, and co-organized by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and the Dunhuang Academy, the show will run until March 16 next year.
