Treasures found inside those caves carry great historical significance and showcase an artistic development of Buddhist art across the centuries. With the generous support of Dr Yeewan Koon and Dunhuang Foundation, participants are able to virtually explore 4 different Mogao caves on HKU campus, including cave 158, 275, 285, and 428. It is going to be a truly top-quality VR experience.
