College students duplicate Mogao No. 3 Cave

Three years of effort paid off for a team of college students, after they created a 1:1 scale replica of the No. 3 Cave of the Mogao Caves, a group of Buddhist and Taoist grottoes found in the desert landscape of northwest China’s Gansu province, reported on Nov. 28.

The work was completed by a team from the School of Fine Arts at Gansu Institute of Political Science and Law, lead by Professor Xu Lin. Over the course of the past three years, both Professor Xu and his students devoted themselves to duplicating the No. 3 Cave to its original dimensions.

The No.3 cave, excavated in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), is one of many caves in the area full of frescoes and statues.
