About the author Contemporary Art Daily Exhibit Unravels Mysteries of Ancient Chinese Temples Through History, Science | PBS NewsHour | July 11, 2011 JUDY WOODRUFF: Finally tonight, bringing together art, history and science. Jeffrey Brown takes us through a unique museum exhibition. JEFFREY BROWN: Sculptures from sixth century China, the head of a Buddha, a seated bodhisattva, a kneeling winged monster, works of art from museums around the world. They tell a tale that goes back some 1,500 years. This is a story of ancient history and the latest technology. It begins in Northeast China in what is today a rural coal mining area at the Xiangtangshan caves. Today, worshipers still come to the caves, but they pray to largely empty spaces.

To a great extent this is due to the country's rocky littoral, which, washed by the Adriatic, is considered one of the most beautiful of the Mediterranean coastlines. Then there is the rich history and cultural heritage of medieval towns such as Dubrovnik, Split and Sibenik. But the well-deserved popularity also depends on the protected natural areas, which make up some ten per cent of the country's area. Eight areas enjoy national park status – a very high number for a relatively small country. Of these, Plitvice is the best known.
