To preserve and transmit Dunhuang’s non-heritage in contemporary China, the renowned painter Zhang Daqian travelled to Dunhuang to duplicate and conserve the murals of the Mogao Caves. Through an analysis of his four behaviours, while he was painting at Dunhuang, Zhang Daqian’s humanistic approach to the protection and preservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage (referred to as ICH) is explored in this article. This will prompt a reconsideration of contemporary ICH to draw lessons from the past and forge a new direction for ICH.
