One of the world's largest collections of Buddhist art can be found in a barren region of western China along the Silk Road, an ancient trade route. Buddhist monks created the art inside hundreds of caves near Dunhuang over a 1,000-year period. Next year, the Getty Museum will offer its visitors the chance to see some of the works in Los Angeles.
