Dunhuang, in the remote Gansu province, is a symbol of openness, inclusion and infusion, for here is where different cultures along the ancient Silk Road crisscrossed, exchanged and created the brilliant fruits such as the Mogao Caves. Today, it has continued to attract artists from across the world.

A recent event of such a purpose teamed up 18 young artists from nine countries who, in a five-day journey, gained experience in the past and present of Dunhuang culture. The trip took them to landmark sites including the Mogao Grottoes, Mingsha Mountain (Echo Sand Mountain) and Crescent Moon Spring, among others. The natural landscape and vivid examples of Buddhist art helped simulate in their minds the booming scenes of traders, envoys and Buddhist followers, whose activities in Dunhuang and neighboring areas enriched the history of ancient Silk Road.
