Chapter Summary

This chapter is an experiment that combines digital imaging and art historical research. It documents the stages of the computer work and discusses the art historical reasons behind it. The chapter focuses on recording the process and the reasons that result in a digitally reconstructed work of art. The chapter represents the first attempt to use digital technology as a tool for East Central Asian art history. Based on the art historical research of the corpus of Manichaean art, the chapter resurrects a poorly preserved book painting and captures its rich visual data in a digitally reconstructed form, as if the image had survived in good condition.

Keywords: East Central Asian art; Manichaean book painting; religion scene
