The Xiangtangshan Grottoes are located in China's Hebei province. Dating from the Eastern Wei and Northern Qi dynasties, there is still very little published on their sculptures. This work much helps by providing a comprehensive visual survey of the caves and their remaining statuary - many sculptures from the caves have been removed and are in collections outside China. Illustrated throughout with good photographic plates. Text in Chinese.
