“Constant entrance and exit changes the temperature and humidity inside the caves. Human bodies also carry microorganisms, and if they start to grow inside the caves, it would be very scary,” said Wang Xudong, president of Dunhuang Academy.

The Story of Dunhuang
Dunhuang was a major stop on the ancient Silk Road. Here is the world’s largest and richest surviving site of Buddhist art. The significance of Dunhuang lies in its grottoes, mural caves. These grottoes are museums of ancient arts and the intersection of Western and Oriental civilizations.
Since the mid-16th century, no one carried out the conservation work at the caves in the following 400 years and the caves were in extremely poor conditions.
Natural factor has led to the deterioration of Dunhuang grottoes and the precious historical relics found inside them. For example, moulds were found on other paintings, and some painted layers had been detached from the conglomerate wall of the caves. Furthermore, the footpaths and some caves collapsed or were buried by sand and sand deposited in front of some caves and eroded the surfaces of some paintings.
