In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, archaeological expeditions to the historical Western Regions of China attracted many foreign expeditions. Foreign explorers came to Kizil one after another to visit and survey the grottoes. These expedition groups removed different numbers of murals and painted statues from their original locations. After twenty years of tireless efforts and with the support of both the Museum ofAsiatischeKunst and the Hermitage Museum, the Kucha Research Institute of Xinjiang has now acquired 465 high-resolution images of the Kizil Grotto murals from more than twenty museums in eight countries. Researchers at the Kucha Research Institutehave measured the murals and compared them with the traces left in the original grottoes, which have since been 3D scanned. Many of their original locations have been located. This book presents the images of the oversea murals to provide the reader with integrated visual information on the original appearance of the caves and their murals. We hope that this exhibition exemplifies the hybridity which so characterizes the cultural heritage of Xinjiang.
