An exhibition featuring replicas of the famous Mogao Grottoes will open at Shanghai Tower, the world’s second tallest building, on April 28. Apart from the three replica grottoes that are of the same size as the ones in China’s Gansu province, 118 precious national-level cultural relics, including a bronze statue named “Galloping Horse Treading on a Flying Swallow” from the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), will be on display during the exhibition. Jointly organized by the Gansu Provincial Administration of Cultural Heritage, Dunhuang Research Academy, Gansu Provincial Museum, Shanghai Tower and other institutions, the event will provide visitors an immersive experience by leveraging virtual reality and other advanced technologies.
