The Dazu Rock Carvings are a series of Chinese religious sculptures that were begun in the mid-7th century during the early Tang Dynasty, with the bulk of the 50,000 carvings and 100,000 Chinese characters forming inscriptions and epigraphs being completed during the late Tang period in the late 9th century.

In 1999 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) listed the Dazu Rock Carvings as a World Heritage Site, stating that, "The Dazu Rock Carvings are remarkable for their aesthetic quality, their rich diversity of subject matter, both secular and religious, and the light that they shed on everyday life in China during this period. They provide outstanding evidence of the harmonious synthesis of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism."[i] [ii]

Some of these national cultural treasures from the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dazu, Chongqing, People’s Republic of China will be exhibited in the United States.  These exquisite relics represent Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian art from the Northern Song (AD 960 -1126); Southern Song (AD 1174-1252); Ming (AD 1368 - 1644) and Qing (AD 1644 - 1911) dynasties.
