China Stamps - 1992-11 , Scott 2407-10 Dunhuang Murals (4th series), Full Sheet of 28 Complete Sets, MNH-VF (Free Shipping by Great Wall Bookstore) : Dunhuang (located at present west to Dunhuang County of Gansu Province) was a vital communication line from China to the Middle Asia and Europe in ancient times. There are a lot of art treasures such as mural paintings and sculptures from 4th century to 14th century left in Mogao Cave (Cave of a Thousand Buddhas). The Dunhuang frescoes are gems of ancient Chinese art and fine embodiments of Buddhist thoughts. The ancient artists presented living situations of various dynasties and beautiful mythologies and legends with their excellent skills and wonderful power of imagination. While describing the myths, they smelted beautiful myths and legends in one furnace, which expressed the great creative spirit of realism and made the works not only treasures of art but also magnificent scenery of history.
