Conservation image China Principles
A project of the Getty Conservation Institute

In November 2004, an Experts' Committee meeting was held to review the findings of the Shuxiang Temple Assessment Report and determine the approach to be taken to the preservation of the site. A select group of respected Chinese cultural heritage professionals were invited and discussions between them, municipal and provincial Cultural Heritage Bureaus, the GCI, and the Australian DEH ensued. A minimalist conservation approach was agreed upon and work is currently under way to develop a conservation plan. Photo: Jonathan Bell.
