The newly-published book titled "The Collection of Gilt Bronze Buddha Statues of the Han and Tibetan Buddhism" reflects the blend and interaction of the Han and Tibetan cultures.

The 99 Buddha statues included in the book dated back to the 600-year period between the Yuan and Qing dynasties, displaying the two ethnic groups' superb techniques of art and crafts manufacturing and their identification on aesthetic attitude.

These statues are considered conducive to the study of the cultural exchanges between the two ethnic groups in northwestern China, as well as the development and achievement of the Tibetan Buddhist art in Qinghai, Gansu and Sichuan provinces.
