The Wanfu tourist company in south Yunnan’s Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture will launch the digital version for local cliff paintings, preserving and presenting the relics to visitors with VR technologies.

Dating back to 3,500 to 5,000 years ago, the mural paintings in Xishuangbanna were discovered in October 2019. As one of the cliff painting sites in Yunnan, the Xishuangbanna site consists of over 200 mural paintings, which are scattered in a 6-meter-long and 23-meter-wide area.

Protection for mural paintings is urgent for some of them will decay and fade away soon. Currently, the Chinese protective techniques for mural paintings are still under development, with some technical problems remaining unsolved.
