Join the race to save the surviving sacred masterpieces of an ancient Buddhist kingdom. Mustang (moo-stahn), one of the last outposts of Tibetan culture, is so isolated and protected, no Westerner set foot inside its borders for centuries. But in the early 1990s, this untouched society set high in the Himalayas opened its borders for the first time, exposing an ancient worlds dazzling sacred relics long damaged by the elements and neglect. Today, outsiders are working with local townspeople to rescue priceless masterpieces dating back to the 13th century- but can these efforts preserve history in a way that is acceptable to the local culture? Join the race against time as art and restoration experts mix history, science, and politics in a complicated anddaunting mission to preserve these religious works of art. Travel to a remote part of the world for a remarkably rare look at the spectacular art created by a clandestine Buddhist culture. See astonishingly intricate and expressive Medieval wall paintings, woodcarvings, and a gravity-defying monastery built atop a cliff. And watch as science helps reveal vibrantly colored treasures from the past. With gods literally peeling off the walls, will outsiders be trusted with saving the sacred art of Mustang?
